COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - Police have charged a Columbus schools’ choral instructor with one count of enticement of a child to meet for lustful purposes.

Columbus Police Department spokesman Don English says an initial court appearance is pending for 30-year-old Michael Jackson of Columbus. It is not known if he has attorney.

English says Jackson was arrested at his home Sunday night.

Jackson is the school district’s public information officer and teaches choral for Columbus High School and Columbus Middle School.

English says the victim was a 17-year-old male student at Columbus High. According to English, Jackson allegedly contacted the teen by text messaging and social media. The investigation is ongoing.

Jackson is being held in the Lowndes County jail.
