Prosecutors charged a Tulsa Public School teacher with four counts of lewd molestation and one count of lewd proposal to a child.  The charges were filed Wednesday.

Brian Drabek, 41, taught sixth grade math and science at Thoreau Demonstration Academy.

He was arrested April 24, 2014 after a police investigation found inappropriate text messages were sent to a 12-year-old female student.  Tulsa Police believe Drabek also touched the girl inappropriately at school and at his home.
