NOBLESVILLE, Ind.– A former Noblesville High School teacher is facing charges in connection to alleged inappropriate conduct with a former student.
Nicholas McKinney, 35, was a health teacher at the school. The board accepted his resignation on Tuesday.
He faces one count of criminal deviate conduct and two counts of child seduction.
According to a statement from Noblesville Schools, the alleged relationship took place in 2012, when the student attended the high school. Police say their investigation is focused on an incident that occurred in the 6200 block of Burlington Avenue in mid-2012.
Once they were informed of the allegations on August 2, school officials notified police.
“The employee in question was immediately removed from contact with students and is no longer employed with Noblesville Schools,” the school system said in a statement.
McKinney was taken into custody Wednesday just after 7 p.m.
