Rose Bud Teacher Arrested for Sex With Teen Student

ROSE BUD, AR - A teacher in the Rose Bud School District faces criminal charges for allegedly having sex with a teenage student.

The Faulkner County Sheriff's Department says 39-year-old Kenneth Barrow is charged with sexual solicitation of a child and second-degree sexual assault.

Barrow was arrested July 6 and was released on $12,500 bond on July 10.

Rose Bud schools superintendent Jeff Williams says Barrow taught senior high math and had worked at the school for five years.  Williams says Barrow served 18 months in Iraq, having returned last November.

Williams could not comment on Barrow's job status because Barrow has a 30-day appeal period.

Williams says the sexual contact did not occur on campus.
