A school employee in Montgomery County now faces charges of having sex with a child.
34-year old Michael Blevins was arrested Tuesday at Shawsville High School, charged with 15 counts of fornication and 30 other counts including sodomy.
State police say the victim is 16 years old but she is NOT one of Blevins' students.
The crimes allegedly occurred last summer in Smyth County, where Blevins taught high school in the 1980's.
He is currently a Montgomery County wrestling coach and math teacher but has been suspended WITH pay until trial.
State police say they plan to press similar charges against Blevins in other jurisdictions.
