MARION, Ind. – A high school teacher turned himself into police Friday after he was accused of touching a 16-year-old girl in an inappropriate manner.

Mitchel Hueston, a teacher at Oak Hill High School, is alleged to have been involved in the incident that occurred during the summer of 2016, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.

School officials notified the department of the allegations in early January and the case was investigated over four weeks until it was turned over to the Grant County Prosecutor’s Office for review.

A child seduction warrant was issued Feb. 9. Once Hueston turned himself in, he was released on bond.

Upon learning of the allegations, Hueston was immediately placed on paid administrative leave until the investigation is complete.
