RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A Wake County teacher has been arrested and charged with having sex with a student when he worked in Durham.

Local media outlets reported that Troy Logan Pickens was arrested Tuesday and charged with having sex with a 14-year-old female student at Neal Middle School in Durham.

Pickens is charged with statutory rape, committing a sexual offense with a student and taking indecent liberties with a child

Durham school spokesman Chip Sudderth says Pickens resigned in March, 2015, two days after he had been suspended following a student’s report that he had grabbed her.

Pickens has been suspended from his job at Durant Road Middle School in Raleigh. It was not clear if he has an attorney.
