MARANA, Ariz. -- A 33-year-old teacher from Marana is under arrest on charges he tried to solicit a child on an Internet chat room.

Justin Sargent is an 8th grade science teacher at Marana Middle School.

Authorities in Colorado say an undercover investigator posed as a child and had conversations on-line with Sargent in which he asked for sexually explicit photos.

Sargent is out on bond and was allowed to come back to Arizona.
