MILAN, Ohio - The Erie County Sheriff's Office is investigating allegations that a teacher at a vocational school had sexual contact with a student.
Capt. Paul Sigsworth said detectives "are investigating allegations of an improper sexual relationship between a male teacher and a female juvenile student" at the EHOVE Career Center near Milan. School administrators informed the sheriff's department of the allegations on Feb. 9, the captain said.
He would not identify the teacher or say how old the student is. EHOVE is a vocational school that serves mostly high school juniors and seniors from Erie, Huron, and Ottawa counties.
The teacher has been on a paid leave of absence since Feb. 10, according to a statement from Glenn Waggoner, a Cleveland attorney who represents the school.
