A Kammerer Middle School teacher arrested Wednesday on charges of seducing a child through the Internet has resigned, police and school officials said.
Ronald Borman, 59, who taught eighth-grade language arts, is accused of sending pornography to a detective in Clearwater, Fla., who was posing as a child during a sting.
Borman will be extradited on felony charges, said Sgt. Gregory Stewart of the Clearwater police.
Although police confiscated Borman's school computer, the charges did not appear to be connected to his work as a teacher, said Lauren Roberts, a spokeswoman for Jefferson County Public Schools.
Letters were sent home with his students saying he was no longer employed, Roberts said.
Borman joined the district in 2001 and taught at Westport Middle School before moving to Kammerer. Before that, he had taught at various Archdiocese of Louisville schools.
Borman had no previous complaints or discipline actions against him at public schools, Roberts said.
Borman was ordained as a Franciscan priest in 1992, but had left the priesthood for unknown reasons by 1998, said Robert Baxter, secretary of a local Franciscan group.
