CHICAGO – A Chicago Public Schools substitute teacher has been charged with indecent solicitation of a 14-year-old student.

Aaron Williams-Banks, 28, is accused of sending sexually explicit text messages to the student and soliciting her for sex.

Williams-Banks was a substitute teacher at Robert A. Black Magnet School, 9101 S. Euclid Avenue according to a CPS spokesman.

He appeared in bond court Saturday.

“He requested to have sex with the victim, arranging a date,” Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Akash Vyas said in court Saturday.

Vyas said Williams-Banks began flirting with the student and sending text messages to her after teaching her math class last month in January.

Another teacher overheard other students talking about it and reported it to school administrators. Williams-Banks was later arrested at his home.

A judge set bond at $50,000 for Williams-Banks.
