Greensboro, NC -- A former teacher for Guilford County Schools is facing some serious charges of sex offenses with a student.

Friday, Sheriff BJ Barnes with Guilford County Sheriff's Office said they arrested Roger Brice Redding Williams, Jr. for Statutory Rape of a Child, Indecent Liberties with a Child, and Sex Offense with a Student.

According to Sheriff Barnes, Williams was employed as a teacher at Eastern Guilford High School at the time of the offense, which allegedly occurred during the 2010-2011 school year.

The victim was a student at Eastern Guilford when the alleged incident happened, Barnes said.

Guilford County Schools released this statement about Williams' arrest: Guilford County Schools is working closely with detectives on the investigation, and takes any allegation involving employees acting inappropriately very seriously. Student and staff safety is a top priority. All employees and volunteers must go through a comprehensive background check before they are hired or allowed contact with students. In addition, the school district uses a system that runs local and state criminal checks every night.

The Eastern High principal sent a phone message to all parents earlier today.

Detectives are still investigating the case.
