A David Crockett High School teacher has been suspended without pay pending the results of an investigation of possible sexual misconduct with a minor.

A suspension letter requested and received by News 5 says Dillon Roberts is barred from school property without consent after allegations involving a student who does not attend the Jonesborough high school.

The document from Director of Schools Kimber Halliburton also said allegations made by the student say the incident did not occur on school grounds.

A spokesperson for the Washington County, Tennessee Sheriff's Office said Thursday due to the active nature of the investigation they cannot comment on the case.
