GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Greensboro teacher was arrested Thursday and has been charged with two felony counts of taking indecent liberties with children, court authorities say.

Elbashir has been a US citizen since 2011 and is originally from Sudan.

The judge upheld his $50,000 bond and his next court date is Sept. 12 at 8:30 a.m.

He has no prior convictions.

Elbashir is an educator who holds a master’s degree, his lawyer says.
