'Do all your friends know you like girls butt?' Cop teaching eighth graders about dangers of sexting resigns after he sends 'inappropriate' messages to three students

A former police lieutenant in Georgia, who taught students about the dangers of sexting, resigned to avoid getting fired after an internal investigation revealed dozens of Snapchat messages and texts that he had sent to middle school girls. 
Former Cartersville Police Department Ryan Prescott, who worked as a local school resource officer, sent dozens of messages to three girls that the department deemed, 'unprofessional and inappropriate'. 
During one exchange, Prescott - who went by the name Bubba Ryan on Snapchat - discussed the sexual orientation of one of the girls. 'Do all your friends know you like girls butt? Lmao' he asked before asking the youth to also 'send me a pic of her.'

Details of the messaging were revealed in a recent public records request of the probe's findings, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.  
Prescott, who was the school resource officer at the Carterville Middle School, resigned on March 5, the same day the investigation concluded that he violated Cartersville Police Department standard operating procedures, the documents say.
They cited three sections that he violated, including 'professional image,' 'social networking' and 'conduct unbecoming'.
The investigation was ordered by Police Chief Frank McCann March 2 after he was contacted by the assistant superintendent for the Cartersville School System, according to the documents. 
School officials by then were already aware of messages between Prescott and the three middle school students.
Prescott was interviewed the following day and placed on paid administrative leave.

A day later, he sent the chief his resignation, in lieu of termination, the Constitution Journal reports.
While interviewed during the investigation, Prescott acknowledged that he taught several classes at the school, including 'Sexting and Social Media', but admitted that he wasn't familiar with all platforms, including Snapchat.
An eighth grader showed Prescott how to use the social media app, and that's when Prescott began messaging the student and two other girls, the investigation found.
Prescott had told investigators that he was trying to build a 'trusting' relationship with the student who taught him Snapchat and set up his account, because he worried she was being bullied.
'When confronted with the comments he exchanged with the students, Prescott agreed that they may appear inappropriate but that was not his intent,' the internal documents show.
Investigators combed through 20 pages of Snapchat and text messages.
Among the messages, Prescott also wrote to several students claiming he was intoxicated. The former cop denied he was drunk and also shot down an accusation he was attempting to 'groom' a student.

In one of his messages he tells a girl that he was 'drunk texting everyone.'  
Parents interviewed by cops said they had seen inappropriate messages between the students and the former police lieutenant. None were sexual in nature, the parents said.
However, the parents also say they had heard Prescott was more explicit with other youth, the documents say.
In another message, Prescott tells a female student to delete the messages and not tell anyone because 'rumors will spread.'
One parent said she was concerned by the number of messages more than the content, with one exception. Prescott, according to the parent, had sent a message saying, 'Ill give you a finger up too butthead.'
