Rockbridge art teacher arrested on underage sex charge

Posted: Updated:

A Rockbridge County high school art teacher is in jail facing charges in Florida.

Greg Staton is charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl back on July 2nd.

Investigators say it happened in Santa Rosa County, which is near Pensacola.

Investigators also confirmed they believe Staton met the girl on-line.

The U.S. Marshals Office arrested Staton last week at his home in Fairfield.

A spokesman for the Rockbridge County school system said Staton is suspended pending the outcome of his trial.

A spokesman for the Santa Rosa County sheriff's office said it's investigating the possibility there may be more victims.
