INDIANAPOLIS - A middle school teacher who was accused of child solicitation has been fired.

The Franklin Township school board voted Monday night to fire Robert Roach, 53, from his position at Franklin Township Middle School East.

Roach was placed on administrative leave in August pending a police investigation.

Officials said Roach was arrested after showing explicit images to an undercover Wisconsin police officer who was posing as a 15-year-old girl on the Internet.
