LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) -

A Little Rock high school special education teacher is facing over a dozen sex-related charges after an investigation by police. 

According to a report from Little Rock television station KARK, Hall High School special education teacher Donald Moore is facing 14 counts of rape, two counts of incest, and one count of sexual indecency.

Moore has been with the district for nearly two years.

According to a booking report, Moore is accused of raping and sexually abusing two victims from the age of four, up to their teenage years, specifically 1985-1996 for one victim and 1991-2004 for the other.

Moore is on paid leave from the district pending the outcome of the investigation. The Little Rock School District released the following statement:

"We were aware of the very serious allegations made against Mr. Donald Moore. When such matters are brought to our attention, we take them seriously, review them promptly, and follow appropriate protocols. Mr. Moore has been placed on paid administrative leave pending a more thorough review of the matter, as is customary per LRSD policies. We have no reason to believe this matter involves any of our students; however, we will cooperate with authorities as the investigation continues. Because this is a personnel matter, we will not be able to provide any additional comments at this time. LRSD is committed to providing a safe, welcoming, and nurturing educational atmosphere for all students."

He appeared in court Wednesday morning and a judge set Moore's bond at $250,000.
