UPDATED: Teacher Accused Of Having Sex With Student

Another Wayne County teacher has been arrested for having sexual activity with a student.

Shannon Herring, an exceptional children's teacher at Southern Wayne High School, has been charged with two counts of sexual activity with a student.

Deputies say Herring had sex with the 17-year-old boy on at least two occasions during October and November of last year. Authorities say the encounters did not happen at the school.

The 32-year-old Herring, who lives in Kinston, was freed on a $5,000 secured bond.

The school system says Herring was hired in August 2007 and was placed on administrative leave November 17th, the day before the school went to authorities with the allegations.

Last Friday a former teacher at Mount Olive Middle School was arrested after being accused of sexual misconduct with a student.
