ST. BERNARD PARISH, LA (WVUE) - Bond was set Friday for a student teacher accused of inappropriately touching a pupil at a St. Bernard Parish elementary school.
Remy Ferrell, 24, remains jailed on a $200,000 bond. He was booked Thursday with one count of felony sexual battery, but the investigation is ongoing and there could be more victims resulting in additional charges, according to Sheriff James Pohlmann. Pohlman said the touching was on the outside of the victim's clothing.
Ferrell has been a student teacher since August at Joseph Davies Elementary in Meraux. He was taken into custody and questioned after several parents – who had learned of possible misconduct - brought their concerns to the school.
