MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY — A McCracken County High School teacher accused of asking a former student to send him naked pictures is expected to be in court for the first time on Thursday.

Daniel Edwards is charged with harassing communications.

The criminal complaint filed against him says he asked the former student to send the pictures last summer.

It also mentions another incident involving a current student, but does not go into details about those claims.

We’ll be in the courtroom and let you know what happens on air and online.

The allegations against Edwards are just one of three investigations current going on in the McCracken County School District.
