Teacher Facing Sex Charge Involving Student

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A West Tennessee high school teacher and soccer coach is facing sex charges involving a student.

Jackson police said 25-year-old Kendall Bell was arrested Friday on two counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and one count of sexual battery by an authority figure.

The Jackson Sun reported that the allegations involved a female student at the South Gibson High School, where Bell taught and coached boys' soccer.

Bell was suspended in April without pay when police began investigating the complaint. Gibson County Special School District director Eddie Pruett said on Friday that he was aware of new developments in the case, but no further action would be taken immediately.
