Sheriff Frank Andrews said he asked the district attorney's office to help investigate Kendrick Maxwell and accusations of solicitation of prostitution and misappropriating county-issued equipment.
Maxwell was suspected of using a county owned Black Berry to take nude photographs of himself and post them to the website Craigslist on a personal e-mail account, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Rabun County education officials and Andrews said they decided to fire Maxwell after an internal investigation. Maxwell called the internet posting a stupid mistake in a released statement.
The Mountain Judicial Circuit District Attorney's Office was reviewing the case before deciding on any charges.
