FORT PAYNE, Ala. (AP) - A man accused of sending more than 1,600
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.

Police say Galloway is a friend of the 15-year-old girl's
family.

The messages were discovered when a teacher confiscated the
girl's phone because the teen was text messaging during class.
Authorities say Galloway sent the messages to the girl over a
30-day period about a year ago.
