A Georgia high school’s former teacher of the year is accused of sexually assaulting three female students on campus.
The Cobb County sheriff’s department says Spencer Herron was arrested Friday on three felony charges of sexual assault by a teacher.
News reports say Herron taught video production at Kell High School, where he was named “Teacher of the Year” in 2016.
The Marietta Daily Journal says charges were brought against Herron by three students or former students. In one case, Herron was accused of raping the victim multiple times between January and May 2017.
Cobb County sheriff’s spokesman Glenn Daniel says jail records don’t show an attorney for Herron.
A school spokesperson says the school district is cooperating with police and hadn’t received any complaints about Herron before the investigation.
