GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — A 23-year-old former classroom aide at Lakeshore Middle School admitted to police that he sent nude photographs to juveniles and engaged in sexual conduct with an 8th grader, according to court documents obtained by FOX 17.

Dominic Ciccantelli was arrested earlier this week and charged Tuesday with accosting a minor for immoral purposes.

In court documents, Grand haven officials allege that while he was working at Lakeshore Middle School as a special education classroom assistant, Ciccantelli sent explicit photographs to juvenile girls on Snapchat and asked them to send him inappropriate photographs in return.

Ciccantelli is also accused of kissing an 8th grade female student and sleeping with her overnight in his vehicle with two other juveniles in the car.

According to court documents, investigators were first alerted to the alleged inappropriate relationship April 3.

Grand Haven Superintendent Keith Konarska told FOX 17 that Ciccantelli was fired Monday after hearing of his arrest.

Konarska said that Ciccantelli started working for the district as a teaching assistant with special needs students in November 2014.

A letter was emailed to parents on Tuesday, notifying them of the investigation.   Konarska said that his top priority is the safety of his students and is "deeply concerned about this."

The investigation is ongoing.
