A Greenwood Community High School teacher accused of having sex with a student will be in court Tuesday.

Court documents show 36-year-old Timothy Guilfoy confessed that he and a 17-year-old student had sex on more than one occasion and were sending sexually explicit messages to each other.

Guilfoy faces charges of child seduction.

Guilfoy resigned from his position as a physical education teacher and coach of the girls golf team at Greenwood Community High School.

"It's upsetting when a person in a position of trust takes advantage of that position for his own benefit, sexual benefit, and the black eye it gives all the great teachers who got to work with the idea of taking care of the students rather than the alternative," said Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Eric Schmadeke, speaking to WTHR in a March 2014 interview.
