Upstate DJJ teacher on leave during investigation


An Upstate teacher has been removed from the DJJ Upstate Evaluation Center in Jonesville during an investigation.

DJJ says they are looking into allegations that the teacher said sexual innuendos to students.

The report was first made on August 26th. DJJ says at that time the teacher was placed in a position where he was not around students.

On September 7th, the teacher was removed from the school without pay, pending the outcome of the investigation.

The Union County Sheriff’s Office was never notified of the investigation, DJJ says it would be typical for them not to include the sheriff’s office unless charges need to be filed.

We have requested documents pending the outcome of the investigation.
