NEWPORT, Ky. (AP) — A middle school teacher in Kentucky has been accused of sexually abusing a child over a period of nearly seven years. The Campbell County Police Department said in a news release Monday that Jason Schwartz, of Dayton, was arrested Sunday. Police say his arrest came a day after officers got a tip from the Boone County Sheriff’s Office about a video that depicts a sex crime against a juvenile. Authorities say the last of these crimes had occurred nearly eight years ago. News outlets report the 32-year-old is employed by the Kenton County School District. A spokesperson for the district said Schwartz has been suspended.
