sexually explicit text messages - commonly known as "sexting" -
to a teenage girl is out on bond.
DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris said Friday that 40-year-old
Garry Don Galloway was released on $15,000 bond. He was arrested
Wednesday and charged with 27 counts of harassing communications
and contributing to the deliquency of a child.
