GALAX, Va. – A former Galax Middle School teacher has been arrested for crimes related to an alleged inappropriate relationship with a child, according to the Grayson County Sheriff's Office. 

Jessica Snow, 33, was indicted Friday before a Grayson County grand jury for three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child, use of a communication system to facilitate certain offenses involving children, three counts of indecent liberties with a child by custodian, and entice a child to perform in pornography. 

According to the Sheriff's Office, the investigation began when Snow was found parked at a boat landing with a child. The Sheriff's Office later discovered that the child was a student of Snow's and that the two had a romantic relationship. 

The Galax City School Board held a special meeting to discuss the case and decided to fire Snow. 

The case is still under investigation and additional charges are pending. Snow was arrested Friday and released on a $20,000 bond.
