THOMSON, Ga. (AP) -- A former high school ROTC instructor has been indicted on a charge of having sex with a student in east Georgia.
A McDuffie County grand jury indicted 57-year-old Mitchell Sivas of Thomson on a charge of sexual assault by a person with disciplinary authority.
The Augusta Chronicle reports the man allegedly had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student. The young woman has since graduated.
Sivas used to work as an ROTC instructor at Harlem High School and is a retired Army lieutenant colonel. Court records aren't available online to show whether Sivas has a lawyer, and there's no telephone number listed in his name.
A court official says a hearing for Sivas will likely be held in mid-July.
