    Mark Swanson, 50, math teacher at Ocoee Middle School, Bradley County Schools, Cleveland, Tennessee, "indicted on charges that he touched one of the girls in his class during school hours"

    Time Free Press: Former Bradley County middle school teacher indicted on touching charges (June 1 2013)

    Two weeks ago, a Bradley County grand jury returned indictments against Swanson on four misdemeanor assault charges. The indictments show the alleged incident happened between Jan. 1 and 31 of this year and claims Swanson had unlawful physical contact with one of his students. Bradley County Sheriff's Office Lt. David Shoemaker said the initial complaint came from one of the sixth-grade girl's family members. He said he didn't want to jeopardize the case and say what Swanson was accused of, but he explained that a hug, kiss, pat on the back or massage easily could fall under the indictment's charges.
