An arrest warrant states he received two photos of minors engaging in sexual activities.

Thompson spent a year as an eighth grade math teacher in Hardin County.

The State Journal reports he was named middle school teacher of the year for the 2017-18 school year when he taught in Franklin County. It’s unclear whether he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
