A William Lenoir Middle School teacher who was arrested and charged with taking indecent liberties with a child has now also been charged with felonious restraint.
According to WBTV, a warrant accuses Biggs of “restraining a girl under the age of 16” and then “moving her from the place of initial restraint without her parents’ consent.”
The Lenoir police department charged 29-year-old Justin Biggs with five felony counts of indecent liberties with a child earlier in December.
Biggs was a math teacher and softball coach at the school. School officials confirmed Biggs has resigned. William Lenoir Middle is located in Caldwell County in North Carolina
The investigation into Biggs was prompted by a report that there had been a “physical assault by a teacher” on November 9th of this year. Court documents state that Biggs is accused of “committing a lewd act on a child.”
Biggs posted a $25,000 bond and will appear in court today.
