CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) - A Clarksville school nurse has been arrested for sexual exploitation of a minor.

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, Leon Burnett Hensley was arrested Monday. He was a nurse at Northeast High School in Clarksville and a spokesperson from the Clarksville-Montgomery County School system told News4 Hensley was terminated on Nov. 8. 

An arrest affidavit obtained by News4 shows that on Nov. 15, an officer with the Clarksville Police Department searched Hensley's phone and found pictures of a naked child. The photo focused on the genital area of the child, according to the affidavit.

It is unclear if the child was a student at the school.

The district hired Hensley in 2017. He is currently out on a $10,000 bond.
