LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Court records say a Kentucky choir teacher has been charged with four counts of sexual abuse.
News outlets report three of the counts against 36-year-old Thomas C. Steuart involve a child under the age of 12. The teacher at Winburn Middle School in Lexington was arraigned Thursday on the fourth count.
Steuart has been placed on administrative leave.
Court documents say a group of children would sometimes go to Steuart's house to swim and watch movies. Records say one of the children under 12 said Steuart inappropriately touched him twice while they watched movies. Another child said in an interview that Steuart took a group of children out to eat and inappropriate touching later occurred.
It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
