A Georgia middle school teacher was arrested Tuesday following allegations that he arranged times for students to have sex in a closet in his classroom.

Quinton Wright, a 25-year-old math teacher at The Champion School in Stone Mountain, has been charged with four misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, WSB-TV in Atlanta reports.

Wright arranged times for students to use his classroom closet and provided them with condoms, according to an arrest warrant. It was first discovered by a mother of an eighth-grader who said she found texts messages between Wright and her 14-year-old son on the child’s phone, WSB-TV reports.

“It’s very sickening and disheartening, because we trust administrators and educators when we drop our kids off at school,” the mother said.
