SHREVEPORT (AP) — Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says a 33-year-old teacher at Port City Christian Academy is accused of raping and sexually assaulting a mentally challenged 17-year-old student.

He says Jeremy A. Pierce, of Keithville, was arrested Wednesday at the school at Westview Christian Church and booked on charges of aggravated rape, sexual battery, and prohibited sexual conduct between educator and student. His bond is $750,000. It was not immediately known whether Pierce has an attorney.

Detective James Moore, of Youth Services Division, says Pierce allegedly touched the girl inappropriately many times on the grounds of the school. He says Pierce allegedly used text messages to call her out of class.
