(OWEN CO.) - Owen County prosecutors have charged a middle school wrestling team manager of sending sexual pictures and texts to an eighth-grade student.

State Police were alerted on February 23 to an inappropriate relationship between a 14-year-old student at Owen Valley Middle School and 24-year-old Eva Wright, who was serving as the manager for the middle school's wrestling team and the wrestling coach's fiancé.

On Feb. 24, investigators examined a cell phone that showed the two corresponding with nude photos and approximately 516 text messages, which were sexual in nature at times, court documents say. In addition, authorities found an explicit picture of the student sent to Wright.

The eighth grade victim reportedly told officers that Wright kissed him one day at practice and he remembered slapping her on her backside.

Wright reportedly told officers that she did not feel very attractive and suffered from low self-esteem after having a baby, so she was craving attention.

Wright claimed she never asked for videos or pictures from the student, but told him she liked them to make him happy and not hurt his ego. She told officers she had no other inappropriate communication with other wrestlers.

Wright has since posted a $25,000 surety bond.
