A substitute middle schoolteacher is accused of exchanging lewd photos and having inappropriate online conversations with students at Choctaw Middle School.

David Griggs, 24, is charged in Oklahoma County with lewd acts with a child under 16. According to an affidavit filed by sheriff's deputies, Griggs told investigators he sent a 15-year-old girl a picture of his genitals and talked her into sending him photos of her buttocks. She was wearing thong-type underwear in the photo.

The girl told deputies Griggs also sent her text messages talking about sex.

Attempts to reach Griggs by phone Wednesday were unsuccessful.

The father of a 14-year-old student called police after his daughter had a Facebook conversation with Griggs in which he referenced “cuddling” with the girl.

Griggs was a substitute teacher and coach at the school when the conversations took place and the photos were exchanged last year.

According to the report, Griggs said he also received photos of a 15- or 16-year-old girl in Holdenville.
