A former school employee is accused of a sex crime with a student on campus.
Halifax County deputies arrested Joe Edmondson, Jr. today on a charge of taking indecent liberties with a minor. The 56-year-old Edmondson was the out of school suspension coordinator at Northwest High School.
Deputies say the incident happened last Wednesday at the high school. The school system says the alleged victim is a 14-year-old student.
Edmondson was fired from his job the next day. His bond was set at $2,000 and has a court date of September 14th.
