A Wilkinson County ROTC sergeant who is also a high-school JROTC teacher was arrested and charged with child molestation Tuesday.

A news release from the Wilkinson County school district identified him as Sgt. Rodney Hunter.

He is the second Wilkinson County High School teacher in two days charged with molestation. On Monday, math teacher Cornelius Dontae Jones was also arrested and accused of inappropriate contact with the 15-year-old girl.

The school district's news release says the two cases are connected, but does not describe how. The release also does not describe Hunter's alleged victim or what happened, but Sheriff Richard Chatman told 13WMAZ by phone the two arrests involve the same student.

Earlier Tuesday, Sheriff Chatman said Jones was the only teacher under investigation at the time of his conversation with 13WMAZ's Tom George.  Tuesday night, he said he shared the most complete information available to release.

He could not say Tuesday night if any additional teachers had been interviewed, but told 13WMAZ his office continues to investigate.
