(IDAHO FALLS) – A former Hillcrest High School teacher has been sentenced for sending sexually-charged text messages to a 16-year-old student. 43-year-old Gerald “Tom” Williams Jr. will spend 75 days in jail, 10 years on probation, and must also register as a sex offender. Williams apologized to his family and took responsibility for his actions. Authorities acknowledged that the victim sent the first text message during the exchange in question. Along with paying unspecified amounts in fines and restitution, Williams may no longer associate with a minor without another adult present.
