WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — An English teacher at Carver High School in Winston-Salem was arrested after there were reports of him inappropriately touching students.
Samuel Erick McClain, 38, of Greensboro, is charged with two counts of simple assault after two male students said he patted their buttocks.
Both incidents were reported to have occurred at the school during regular school hours.
McClain was released from jail on a $1,000 bond. His court date is set for June 25.
The school released a statement saying they are aware of the arrest and McClain was suspended in January.
Parents were notified of the situation.
Because state law limits school districts from suspending employees for more than 90 days, McClain returned to the classroom on April 21.
The Winston-Salem Police Department requests that anyone with information regarding this investigation contact Crime stoppers at 727-2800.
