MURRAY, Utah (AP) - A Utah high school social studies teacher is facing nine felony charges after he was accused of inappropriately touching a 15-year-old female student.

The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/2hC1fXb) that sexual abuse of a minor charges were filed Thursday against 38-year-old Corbin Vance Robinson in 3rd District Court.

Robinson was removed from the classroom last week, after the 15-year-old girl reported the alleged abuse. He was arrested Tuesday and is being held at the Salt Lake County jail on $50,000 bail.

The girl told police Robinson touched her over and under her clothing and that a janitor walked in on them once while they were hugging.

A Granite School District spokesman says Robinson was a student teacher at Cottonwood High last year and began teaching full time this year.
