Former John Carroll Teacher Charged with Inappropriate Sexual Contact with two students

Posted: Updated:

After a four month investigation, Jefferson County Sheriff's Detectives obtained arrest warrants for 26 year old Robert Leland Grant of Gardendale, charging him with two counts of a School Employee Having Sexual Contact with a Student Under 19.

In February of this year the Sheriff's Office was contacted by administrators at John Carroll High School to report that a male teacher had been involved in an inappropriate relationship with two sixteen year old female students.

During the investigation it was learned that the teacher would meet the girls at separate locations away from school and engage in inappropriate sexual contact that include touching of a sexual nature and kissing. The contact with the teen girls began in May of 2013 and continued periodically until December 2013.

A third teen girl brought the information to school administrators after the teacher made advances toward her.

Administrators confronted the teacher and told him that they would be launching an internal investigation and he subsequently resigned.

Grant was arrested on these charges Monday morning, booked into the Jefferson County Jail and released after posting an $11,000 bond
