JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A Jackson public school teacher has been charged with statutory rape of a 14-year-old girl.

WLBT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1dn4ULV ) Willie Moorehead appeared Tuesday in court, where bond was set at $100,000.

Investigators say Moorehead allegedly picked up the teenager from her Jackson home on March 10, while the mother was sleeping. Moorehead is accused of taking her to a public park where the alleged sexual encounter occurred.

The teenager’s mother said Moorehead met her daughter last year and befriended her. She contends he enticed her daughter into a sexual relationship when she was 13 years old.

Sheriff Bryan Bailey says he’s sharing information about the case with the Jackson Police Department, noting the possibility of other charges pending against him in other jurisdictions.
