A Coppell Independent School District teacher was arrested Monday for allegedly exchanging inappropriate texts and messages with a minor, deputies say.

Julie Jenkin Brewer, 45, was arrested Monday afternoon, after a complaint was reported to Coppell Middle School West, where Brewer was a middle school teacher, according to the Dallas County Sheriff's Department.

Brewer resigned and is no longer allowed at Coppell Middle School West or any of the Coppell ISD campuses or facilities, the Sheriff's Department said. 

Brewer is charged with online solicitation of a minor and was booked into the Dallas County Jail.

Her mug shot was not yet available. 

The Coppell ISD notified parents and staff of the arrest via email Monday afternoon.

The Coppell Middle School West Principal said in part, "My team and I join you in being deeply disturbed about these allegations, which we take very seriously. There are no words strong enough to express our deep disappointment and extreme outrage at this alleged violation of professional and ethical conduct we expect of our teachers." 

The letter also went on to highlight that all CISD employees must complete a background check prior to being hired and then repeat a background check annually.
