A former administrator at the Episcopal School of Jacksonville is facing a stalking charge in Duval County involving a teacher at the school, according to jail and court records.

According to the injunction, Kearney texted the teacher April 27 and told her he would harm one of her friends if she refused to see him.

When she met Kearney, he was intoxicated and threatened to end her career if she left him, according to the injunction. …
