Osceola County deputies have arrested a school monitor they say sent an inappropriate picture of himself to a 17-year-old student.

Curtis Pratt, 41, a campus monitor at the Zenith School has been charged with transmission of material harmful to minors by electronic device.

Pratt was arrested and booked into the Osceola County Jail. District officials said he has been reassigned out of the school at a location with no children pending the outcome of the investigation.
