Alberti resigned the same month from the school, and his teaching license was suspended in July 2020 by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission, according to WJBF. He also taught in Savannah and Statesboro, according to the TV station.

Alberti’s investigation was outlined in a Probable Cause Case report, which was obtained by NewsChannel 6.

In a recording obtained by WJBF, investigator Bill Van Hoose said, “You were involved in an inappropriate relationship with a student at the school district, is that correct?”

Alberti said, “Yes, sir,” according to the report.

Van Hoose explored the alleged incident further, according to the report.

“The allegation is that you sent her a number of inappropriate, sexually charged text messages, is that true?” Van Hoose asked, according to the report.

“I was having a conversation with her. Yeah,” Alberti said, according to the report.

The investigator continued, “Are you saying it wasn’t sexual at all? Is that your claim?”

Alberti then said, “No, it was definitely sexual intention,” according to the report.

Alberti, who was indicted by a grand jury in September and arrested Saturday, bonded out of jail the same day, WJBF reported.
