England had performed sexual acts with a female student multiple times, and had exchanged inappropriate pictures with the student through a social media application, the document stated.

He had performed these acts on the school premises and other locations, such as a cattle trailer, according to the affidavit.

England denied the allegations while being interviewed by police officers.

After evidence samples were taken by investigators from England’s office, police obtained a search warrant, arrived at England’s residence and swabbed DNA samples. The samples matched, and England was arrested.

He was later released from the LeFlore County Jail on a $90,000 cash surety bond. His next court date has been scheduled for August 8, 2016.
