SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Sioux City teacher has been arrested on charges he had sex with a 16-year-old student.

Court records say 29-year-old Erick DeLeon, a Sioux City Community School District teacher and coach, was charged Monday with felony exploitation by a school employee. He was released on bail Tuesday.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1wokOxU ) DeLeon is accused of sending sexually related text messages and engaging in sexual acts with the one of his female students at least twice from September through December.

School district officials did not immediately return calls from the newspaper. An attorney for DeLeon was unavailable for comment.

DeLeon is set to appear in court Jan. 30.
