Stone Mountain, Ga. (CBS ATLANTA) — A teacher was fired and a judge issued an arrest warrant after claims from a mother that he allowed and arranged for middle school students to have sex in his classroom closet.
“I was in a state of disbelief when I read all these messages,” the mother tells WSB-TV, referring to texts between her 14-year-old son and Quinton Wright, a math teacher and coach at Champion Theme Middle School in Stone Mountain. “Basically, he’s allowing the students to have sex in a storage room of his classroom.” The boy’s mother asked to remain anonymous.

The mother says the teacher, 25-year-old Quinton Wright, arranged times for when her son could use the classroom closet for sex. A text message exchange obtained by WSB shows the teacher allegedly setting up the sexual encounter for the eighth grader.
“Ight, I’m going to bring my lab top to cut some of the noise back there,” reads one message allegedly sent by Wright.
“Ight,” the student responds.
“I ain’t got no condoms…Yall can’t be long,” reads Wright’s response.
“I’ll give u to money for it tomorrow can u get me a 3 pack of Trojan enz,” replies the student.
The mother claims Wright also sent her son a calendar displaying teachers’ schedules.
“He told my son you can have it from 7:30 to like 8:30,” the mother said, reading more text messages to WSB. “’Did you tell the girl what’s going to happen? That she cannot tell anybody?’ Basically, don’t tell anyone I’m allowing you to use my room.”
The mother said the “sickening” and “disheartening” incident caused her to pull her eighth grade son from school Friday and contact the principal and police to file a complaint. The Dekalb County school system removed Wright from the classroom. She said she’s had her suspicions about the teacher for some time now.
“He called me when the kids are at their eighth-grade prom and asked if he could come over and take pictures with the boys before the prom, and I said no,” she said.
