Matthew Benedict, 29, of Lake County reportedly gave the teen a cellphone and sexted him, WESH reported. 

Even though Benedict worked in the school district, detectives said, that’s not how they knew each other, according to WESH. 

Investigators added that there’s no evidence that Benedict was inappropriate with any school children.

Benedict was charged with possessing a sexual performance by a child and transmitting harmful material to a minor.
