A Natchitoches Central High School teacher is free on $2,000 bond following her arrest for sending nude photos to a 17-year-old student.

The Times reports police arrested 27-year-old Nickol Smith last Friday after the city's High Tech Crime Unit found the pictures in the cellphones for her and the boy.

Natchitoches Police Capt. Brad Walker says a concerned citizen tipped them of the alleged incident.

Smith was booked with one count of prohibited sexual conduct between an educator and student. If convicted, she faces up to six months in prison and a $1,000 fine. Walker did not know if Smith had an attorney.
