Police charged and arrested a Delone Catholic High School teacher on multiple felony offenses after an investigation revealed he was having an inappropriate relationship with a student at the school.

According to the Adams County District Attorney's Office, Gary Jon Hatez, Jr., sent and received thousands of text messages from a 16-year-old female student beginning in November 2017.

The investigation also discovered the 31-year-old teacher allegedly purchased a pair of thong underwear for the girl and delivered them to her on school property, after which he solicited and received an illicit photo of the teen wearing a similar pair of underwear, according to the DA's office.

Hatez has been charged with two counts of sexual abuse of children and one count each of unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors, and criminal use of a communication facility.

He is currently incarcerated at the Adams County Prison. Bail has been set at $100,000.
