The Clark County School District Police Department has arrested 25-year-old Garic Wharton II for attempted sexual misconduct with a student.

Wharton has been employed as a substitute teacher at the South Academic Center in Las Vegas since his original hire date in February 2017.

A CCSD Police Department investigation that began on May 18 following a tip from a student revealed that Wharton was engaging in sexually explicit conversation to solicit sex with a 16-year-old female student via social media.

When officers became aware of the situation, Wharton was removed from his teaching responsibilities and he was arrested at his residence on June 1.
