An Upper Valley Joint Vocational School teacher was arrested and charged with one count of sexual battery on Thursday, December 31.

Capt. Chris Anderson of the Troy Police Department said that Eric Williams, 32, was found alone with a juvenile female student inside a car at Duke Park after dark, when it was closed. Anderson said both Williams and the student came to the police department for questioning. The students was released to her parents.

Williams was booked into the Miami County Jail and is charged with sexual battery.

Anderson said he expects Williams to be arraigned on Monday.

I would strongly suggest that the powers that be at Upper Valley JVS reacquaint themselves with page 122 of the JVS Policy Manual concerning terminating employees for "sexual battery".
