WAR, W.Va. (AP) - News reports say a social worker at Southside Elementary School in War is facing multiple counts of sexual abuse.

McDowell County Sheriff Martin West said Thursday that Kenneth H. Brown of War was arrested after receiving a complaint from the school. He is charged with three counts of sexual abuse first degree, one count of first-degree sexual assault, and three counts of sexual abuse by a parent, guardian, custodian or person in position of trust. It is unclear whether he has an attorney.

McDowell County Schools superintendent Nelson Spencer tells WOAY-TV (https://bit.ly/24Bo38R) that Brown was fired from his position a few weeks ago. The sheriff’s department would not say whether the incidents Brown is being accused of occurred at the school.

Brown was jailed on $100,000 bond.
