Cumberland Teacher charged with taking indecent liberties

A Cumberland County teacher has been charged with taken indecent liberties.

Anthony Edward Hall, age 44, was charged Aug. 7 with taking indecent liberties with a student, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. The arrest came after the minor victim filed a report with the sheriff on July 27.

Hall was issued a $25,000 bond and was remanded to the Cumberland County Detention Center.

A forensic investigation of Hall’s electronic devices found that he had used his personal email to have “suggestive” conversations with the minor student for a period of several months.

The case is open and deputies are asking any other victims that may be out there to come forward.

Hall taught social studies at Seventy-First High School and has been an employee of the Cumberland County school system for the past five years.

Cumberland County Schools issued a brief statement:

Providing a safe learning environment for all students and staff is our top priority. We take this matter very seriously and will continue to cooperate with law enforcement officials as they investigate this situation.

The district also indicated Hall was suspended with pay.
