CHURCH HILL — The mother of a 17-year-old Hawkins County student says a teacher who made sexually suggestive communications to her daughter received a slap on the wrist from the school for what should have been considered a criminal offense.

The mother told the Times-News Tuesday that communications between her daughter and the daughter’s teacher were more risque than the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office represented to the Times-News in Tuesday’s edition.

The mother said those communications weren’t made by “texting” — as reported to the Times-News by the HCSO Monday — but as private messages on Facebook, some of which took place after 1 a.m. beginning around March 23.
