Judge grants defense request in former Mishawaka teacher case

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A judge ruled a defense request for more time in the case of a former Mishawaka teacher accused of sending inappropriate texts to a student.

Police arrested Eric West, 30, at Walt Disney Elementary back in October.

They said he admitted to texting a 12-year-old girl. But he claims he did nothing inappropriate.

West is due back in court March 28.
