A former Birmingham police officer is fighting to get his job back after he was caught sexting on the job.

Former officer Jason Yarbrough admits he texted explicit photos of himself to a woman. He was fired in January after an internal investigation.

“He’s very sorry he did that. It had nothing to do with his ability to be a police officer,” Yarbrough’s attorney Scott Morro says.

Morro filed an appeal in Jefferson County Circuit Court fighting his client’s termination from the Birmingham Police Department.
