SHAKOPEE, Minn. (AP) - A Shakopee teacher is charged with soliciting sex from a boy he met at a theater group.

Thirty-four-year-old Andrew Hasty, of Cumberland, Wisconsin, has resigned from Shakopee Public Schools. He’s charged with three felonies after police say he asked a 15-year-old boy to send him photos of his genitals. Authorities say the two met at the Chaska Valley Family Theater drama group.

Hasty was a volunteer with the theater until Feb. 18. A statement released on behalf of Chaska Valley Family Theater says the theater has policies prohibiting offensive and unwelcome behavior, and “swiftly followed” those policies.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1apdLkV ) reports investigators say there’s no evidence other juveniles were solicited. Hasty is being held in the Carver County Jail. It was not immediately clear if Hasty has a defense attorney.
