CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) — A Clayton man who was teaching at a Durham school is charged with indecent liberties with a student, Johnston County officials say.
On Monday, deputies said the incident happened while Kevin Wade Moore, 53, was a JROTC teacher at Hillside High School in Durham.
The investigation began Oct. 4 when the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office received a report of indecent liberties from the Durham County Sheriff’s Office, authorities said in a news release Monday.
The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office news release said Moore “inappropriately touched and solicited sexual acts from a juvenile student at Hillside High.”
Officials said the incident happened at Moore’s home in Clayton during the 2015-16 school year.
Moore resigned from his teaching position on Oct. 10, according to an official with Durham Public Schools.
Moore of Balmoral Street in Clayton is charged with indecent liberties with a student.
Moore was released Monday from the Johnston County Detention Jail on a $20,000 unsecured bond.
