KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) -

A teacher at a Killeen elementary school has been arrested for inappropriate conduct with a student, according to police. 

Killeen PD said that a teacher at Iduma Elementary, Thomas Cannon, had inappropriate contact with a student. 

According to the Killeen ISD superintendent, Dr. John Craft, Cannon was removed from a classroom and prohibited from returning until an investigation was completed. 

In the investigation, a juvenile had disclosed that Cannon had inappropriate physical contact with them. 

Cannon was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. 

On Aug. 2, the case was presented to the Grand Jury and multiple indictments were issued charging 42-year-old Cannon with a total of four counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child and three counts of Indecency of a Child by Contact. Cannon is in the Bell County Jail with a current bond of $800,000.

The district released a statement following the incident: 

"The safety of our students is always our highest priority at Iduma Elementary and across KISD and we take their safety very seriously. If the allegations of misconduct in this case are true, we will support the strongest possible action against the teacher.

    The Saharan dust has diminished a little bit. There is still a good amount around, but the conditions are slowly improving. The air quality index is in a moderate condition, so continue to use caution if you have any breathing or allergy concerns. There will be a few clouds, at times mostly cloudy during the day. There will also be plenty of sunshine peeking its way through the clouds here and there. I have a 20% chance of some rain, but that is being very generous.
