Former School Teacher Indicted On Sex Charge

A retired teacher in the Putnam County school system is free on bond today after turning himself in on a charge of sexual battery. 58-year-old Bruce Anderson of Dixie Avenue was indicted by the grand jury after they heard evidence in the case. Anderson's attorney, Shawn Fry, told the Cookeville Herald-Citizen that the allegations involve a now 18-year-old male student who claims that Anderson touched him inappropriately on the leg and in the crotch area during an incident in April of this year. The student reportedly told another teacher about the contact, and that teacher notified authorities.
