A former Henrietta High School teacher and coach has been arrested. Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemmons said the former educator had improper relations with a high school student.

Sheriff Lemmons found out about the relationship Wednesday. Matthew Ryan Franklin, 31, was arrested Thursday and charged with improper relationship between educator and student, a second degree felony.

The student and Franklin originally said they did not have relations until after she graduated last month.

Sheriff Lemmons said the two now live together. After questioning them at their home earlier this week, both admitted the relationship became sexual in December, while she was still in enrolled in school.
