Sheriff’s Capt. Travis Tilson says that 43-year-old Deanna Marie Robert of West Union was charged with two counts of sexual battery last week. Tilson says deputies got a complaint from a teen’s parents.
School district spokeswoman Kay Powell says Robert no longer works at Tamassee-Salem Middle and High School. Powell wouldn’t comment on the investigation, but says student safety is the district’s most important concern.
School superintendent Mike Lucas says the district is cooperating with the sheriff’s investigation.
Tilson says deputies are trying to determine if additional charges are needed.
It was unclear if Robert has an attorney.
