The Leon County School District on Thursday said it fired Sophina Webb — who was arrested last week on 24 counts of soliciting a minor using a computer — after briefly placing her on administrative leave in late December. 

The statement confirming Webb’s termination comes weeks after police said they found thousands of text messages, many of a sexual nature, exchanged between the 27-year-old Webb and a 15-year-old student.
