After the initial internal investigation began, Borawski was reportedly released from his duties immediately. Detectives then worked alongside the school system and Tennessee Child Protection Services Special Investigations Unit, the sheriff’s department said.

“The quick response and seriousness in which the school officials reacted greatly assisted in the investigation and is an example of their dedication to provide safety for our children,” the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
