GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A former Byron Center High School teacher accused of criminal sexual conduct and a teenage student kept texting each other even after he quit his job over it, court records show.
Recently unsealed records in 63rd District Court say that former Byron Center High School teacher Glenn Davis and the female student exchanged thousands of text messages.
He quit his job in 2012 after the texting was discovered but at the time, both denied they had a sexual relationship.
Detectives didn't uncover that until this year. Davis and the girl allegedly began a sexual relationship when she was 15. He is now facing three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
After the relationship was uncovered and Davis quit his job, he reportedly gave her another cell phone which they used to continue texting.
According to sworn statements an investigator used to get search warrants, Davis even sent the girl sexually explicit pictures of himself in his underwear.
"I miss u. Wanna hug and kiss so bad," some of the text messages read, according to the statement. "I can't wait to be with you, have u in my arms. I swear you will never be out of my reach again."
According to circuit court files, the girl wrote a letter to the judge supporting Davis, saying that she still loves him and does not see herself as a victim.
