The trial continues Tuesday morning for a former Jackson High School teacher accused of sending inappropriate texts to a student.

32-year-old Jonathan Hastings was charged with using a computer to commit a crime and promoting sexually abusive activity.

He was originally charged in May of 2015 after resigning from his position a week before charges were filed. 

Several witnesses took the stand on Monday.

Testimony from investigators is expected on Tuesday. 

The trial is expected to wrap up on Wednesday.
