SWANSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Authorities have accused a North Carolina high school teacher of having a sexual relationship with one of his students.

The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release on Tuesday that 28-year-old Zachary Daugherty is charged with six counts of sex act with a student and three counts of indecent liberties with a student. Daugherty was arrested on Tuesday, and a spokesman for Onslow County Schools said Daugherty has been suspended.
