A JROTC teacher in Durham county has been charged with one count of taking indecent liberties with a student.

According to state statute, taking indecent liberties with a student is a Class I felony.

Kevin Wade Moore, age 53, was arrested by the Johnston County Sheriff’s office on October 16th at his home in Clayton. Moore was released the same day on a $20,000 unsecured bond.

The sheriff’s office in Durham sent a report to the Johnston County Sheriff’s office on or around October 4th regarding Moore. The report alleged Moore had inappropriately touched a student and had solicited sexual acts from a Hillside High student.

The alleged incident occurred during the 2015-16 school year, but did not take place on school grounds but in Moore’s home in Clayton.

Moore resigned on October 10th, but had been a Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) teacher at Hillside High School in Durham.

Last week, it was reported that a Chapel Hill-Carrboro teacher was arrested for assault on a female and a New Hanover Teacher was arrested on a DWI charge with a pending investigation into inappropriate student contact.

Kevin Moore makes the 46th teacher arrest being tracked by American Lens since January of this year.
