CHARGED: Former teacher, girls basketball coach accused of "sexting" two of his players

KENOSHA COUNTY (WITI) -- A former teacher and girls basketball coach at Indian Trail High School in Kenosha made his initial appearance in court on Thursday, February 19th.

25-year-old Jeff Spencer is charged with nine counts of child enticement after police say he engaged in "sexting" with two of his players.

A 20-page criminal complaint details the texts between Spencer and his two alleged victims.

The messages show Spencer repeatedly asked one teen to come over and cuddle with him. The texts got more explicit when Spencer said he was "falling for her" and wanted to hold her in his arms.

The victim told police the two kissed in Spencer's classroom but didn't go any further.

Spencer will be back in court on March 3rd for his preliminary hearing.
