A South Caldwell High School teacher is facing an obscene materials charge.
Scott Walter Curtis, 44, of 20th Avenue N.W. in Hickory, North Carolina was arrested on December 7th.
The Caldwell County Sheriff’s department says the South Caldwell High teacher was arrested on a felony charge of disseminating obscenity.
Caldwell County school officials terminated Curtis’ employment just prior to his arrest. Curtis was the choral director at the school.
Curtis was being held at the Caldwell County Detention Center. A $10,000 secured bond was issued and he was later released.
Scott Curtis will appear in District Court in Lenoir on December 11.
Last week, another Caldwell teacher was arrested.
A William Lenoir Middle School teacher has been charged with taking indecent liberties with a child. William Lenoir Middle is located in Caldwell county in North Carolina.
The Lenoir police department announced that 29 year-old Justin Biggs has been charged with three felony counts of indecent liberties with a child. Biggs was a math teacher and softball coach at the school. School officials confirmed Biggs has resigned.
The investigation into Biggs was prompted by a report that there had been a “physical assault by a teacher” on November 9th of this year. Court documents state that Biggs is accused of “committing a lewd act on a child.”
