Charles Ray Moore works as an JROTC instructor at Atholton High School in Columbia, Md. A 17-year-old student told her mother that twice this month she stayed late at school and engaged in sex acts with the 51-year-old teacher in a classroom, detectives said.

Moore was arrested Monday night, and has been charged with sexual child abuse and sexual abuse of a minor by a person in a position of authority.

Police said they have not received any other reports of sexual misconduct from other students, but they want anyone who may have information to come forward.
