A former Randolph County teacher was arrested and has been charged with rape.
Brian Antonio Guerrero, age 24, was arrested on Monday, Jan. 20 and charged with second-degree forcible rape. The charge is a Class C felony carrying a sentence of 44 to 182 months in jail.
Police say the charge has nothing to do with any students and involves an adult.
He was issued a secure bond of $350,000 and was taken to the Randolph County Detention Center.
Guerrero taught Honors Math II, Honors Math III at Randolph Early College High School.
Randolph County School System officials said that Guerrero was hired at the end of July of 2018 and that he resigned from his position on Monday, Jan 21. State law requires the district to report the resignation to the State Board of Education.
Guerrero has an active North Carolina teaching license in the area of Mathematics 9-12. That license is set to expire on Jun. 30, 2021 unless revoked beforehand.
Guerrero is the third NC teacher arrest tracked by this website in 2020.
