HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police have arrested a former Hartford Public Schools official who resigned last week after being accused of sending inappropriate text messages to a minor.

Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley says 57-year-old Eduardo Genao was charged with felony risk of injury to a minor on Wednesday.

Genao had worked for the school system since 2005, most recently as executive director of compliance before stepping down in the midst of a police investigation.

Mayor Luke Bronin’s office says Hartford police investigated allegations that Genao carried on an inappropriate text message relationship with a girl who wasn’t a student in the city.

The school system has faced criticism for its handling of the situation after a tipster came forward with the allegations in March.

An attorney representing Genao couldn’t be reached for comment.
