Sanford police charged a teacher at Lee Christian School on Wednesday with sex crimes against a student.
57-year-old Daniel Jeremy Abraham of Falling Water Road in Spring Lake is charged with one felony count of indecent liberties with a student and a misdemeanor count of sexual battery.
The circumstances of the case aren’t totally clear, but WNCN news reports that police first received a tip about “misconduct” at the school on Nov. 8. Court records indicate that Abraham was indicted on Monday and charged on Wednesday.
He was initially placed in the Lee County Jail without bond, but after a hearing on Thursday, bond was set at $5,000 with the condition that Abraham is not allowed to have contact with the victim or be allowed in the presence of any minor child “unless in the sanctuary of church service.” As of Friday, he no longer shows as a current inmate on the Lee County Jail’s website.
