Teacher Accused of Having Sexual Relationship With Former Student

A Jackson County teacher will be in court Friday morning for a bond hearing.

The sheriff's office arrested 32 year old Kyle McDaniel Thursday afternoon after school let out for the day.

He is accused for having an inappropriate relationship with a former student.

McDaniel is an 8th grade science teacher at Grand Ridge Middle School.

Investigators say the sexual relationship began last July. They did not say if the relationship took place at school or off-campus.

But they say they do not believe the alleged sexual activity happened while McDaniel was the student's teacher.

McDaniel is charged with lewd and lascivious battery and a child between the ages of 12 and 16.
