DUDLEY, Mass. (AP) - A former Southbridge teacher charged with sending nude photos of himself to a high school student has been found guilty.

Telegram & Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1TmkRXq ) 21-year-old Joseph Zuniga of Webster was found guilty this week of distributing obscene matter to a minor.

He was ordered to serve probation until May 2018 and pay a $1,200 fee.

Police say the former Southbridge High School teacher sent nude photos to the 17-year-old boy through a Facebook message. A school resource officer overheard students talking about it and alerted police.

Zuniga was arrested in October and his employment at the school was terminated. He taught English to non-native speakers.
