Fmr. Bryant High School teacher charged with sexual assault of a student

Posted: Updated:

BRYANT (KATV) - A Bryant High School band teacher is charged with sexual assault of a student. The Bryant Police Department says 36-year-old James Chad Green was charged with sexually assaulting a student at the high school where he taught. 

Police charged him with the crime October 16th but didn't arrest him until October 31st. And although the charges were filed just a few weeks ago, police say they have been investigating this since January of this year. If these allegations sound familiar it is because this is the second teacher this year that has allegedly acted inappropriately with a student. The last teacher was also charged. The parents we talked to were shocked and disappointed upon hearing the news.

"Shows where our morals are today concerning you know young kids and things that go on in the community," said Michael Johnson, a Bryant resident. "Parents just should you know talk to their kids be more aware of what's going on and your school district, in your community and in your surroundings," he said.

"I was really disappointed you know we trust the students to take care of our children and teach them and not do anything that's disrespectful or immoral," said Sharhonda Butler, also a Bryant resident with a young child.

Green's bail was set at $25,000 he is currently out on bond.

We did reach out to Bryan High School but because it is a personnel issue they are not allowed to comment on the matter. But police were able to confirm that Green is no longer teaching at the high school.
