BUTLER, Pa. - A suspended English teacher has been charged with sending inappropriate text messages to two high school students, including a picture of a female exposing her breasts.

Christine Martin, 33, of Cranberry, was arraigned yesterday on corruption of minors and other charges.

School Superintendent Ed Fink said school officials had been aware of the allegations since November, when Martin was suspended without pay from Butler High School. Butler is 30 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Martin's attorney, Bernard Tully, said there was no indication Martin had any inappropriate physical conduct with either student, a 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl. He would not comment on the charges. Martin faces a preliminary hearing June 25.
