WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Court documents say a District of Columbia high school teacher told authorities that he had sent sexually explicit text messages to about 10 students in his career.

John Solano, a 29-year-old science teacher at McKinley Technology High School, was arrested last week on a child pornography charge.

Two students at the school told the authorities that Solano had sent them sexually explicit and inappropriate text messages. Court documents say that under questioning, Solano reported having similar conversations with no more than 10 students during his career.

Solano has been placed on administrative leave. Online court records show that Solano is being held without bond, and that the two sides have begun negotiating a plea agreement.

His lawyer didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment on Tuesday.
