A teacher at Wilkinson County High School is under arrest, facing charges of child molestation.
That's according to an e-mail from a spokesman for the school system, which says he was taken to the Wilkinson County Law Enforcement Center.
The e-mail identifies the teacher as Cornelius Danta Jones.
The system says he resigned Monday as investigators questioned him over alleged inappropriate conduct with a student.
His resignation would need to be officially approved by the school board.
We have not been able to reach the Sheriff's Office for comment.
A news release says high school administration is assisting with the ongoing investigation, and quotes the superintendent, Dr. Aaron Geter, as saying, "Any allegation of harm against a student is taken seriously and we are working with the proper authorities as they investigate."
