A 79-year-old retired public school employee is in jail for allegedly sending inappropriate messages to a minor, Michigan State Police said.
State police said they were tipped off in September that retired middle school employee Sue Ann Asch had allegedly been texting and using Snapchat to send the inappropriate messages.
Police launched an investigation, including interviewing the unidentified minor at the Children’s Advocacy Center in Traverse City. Authorities also obtained warrants for Asch’s residence in Kalkaska, which resulted in police seizing “several electronic devices,” according to the authorities’ press release.
The devices were subsequently sent to the State Police Computer Crimes Unit for analysis. Police have not released any details as to what Asch’s messages to the minor reportedly contained, though they noted the victim knew Asch.

A report was filed with Kalkaska County Prosecutor’s Office, and a warrant was issued for Asch’s arrest on Jan. 8. The former school employee turned herself in, according to police.
