Oak Ridge Teacher Faces Charges of Sex With Student

Oak Ridge, Anderson County (WVLT) - A grand jury has indicted an Oak Ridge Middle School teacher on six counts of having sex with a former student.

The indictment charges Montgomery Koons with three counts of aggravated statutory rape and three counts of sexual battery by an authority figure.

Koons surrendered to police on Wednesday and is free on $50,000 bond.

He remains on unpaid leave from Jefferson Middle School, where he is a sixth-grade teacher.

Investigators say Koons had sex several times last summer with a former student who is now in high school.
