A teacher accused of having a romantic affair with a young student is formally charged in court this morning.

Matt Lindholm is charged with two felony counts of sexual assault on a child. The former teacher and Central High School girls’ basketball coach is out on bond right now.

He's accused of kissing and hugging a student several times in the coach's office at Central High.

An arrest affidavit states he even bought the student clothing as a gift and exchanged text messages with her. Lindholm resigned from both his teaching and coaching positions at Central High in February.
