LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Clarksville High School teacher accused of asking a female student for revealing pictures has been fired, effective immediately.

The board of trustees unanimously decided to fire Scott Schermerhorn during a special meeting Tuesday night.

The now former teacher has been suspended since police charged him with attempted child exploitation.

Police subpoenaed Schermerhorn's text messages, social media accounts and his computer.

Schermerhorn was arrested the same day he did an interview with police, according to court documents.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the 31-year-old admitted that he requested inappropriate photos from students to investigators on Monday.

Police say Schermerhorn asked for inappropriate photos from two other students, ages 15 and 18.
