BALTIMORE (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted a public school teacher in Carroll County on a charge of attempted enticement of a minor.

The 39-year-old teacher has been identified as Kenneth Brian Fischer of Westminster.

The indictment was announced Friday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Baltimore.

They say the teacher allegedly used email and texts to try and coerce a minor to meet him for sex. If the allegation is proven, Fischer faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.

His initial court appearance is not yet scheduled. It was not immediately clear if he has a lawyer.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched by the Department of Justice to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.
