ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

  Testimony gets underway in the trial of a former Westover High School teacher charged with offering money for sex with teenaged girls.

  39 year old Reastgo Holmes is charged with three counts of pandering for a person under 18 and one count of enticing a child for indecent purposes.

The jury was selected last night, and testimony began Wednesday morning.

Holmes has been on house arrest since in March 2011, when the Board of Education accepted his resignation.

If he's convicted, he could face ten years in prison for each count.
