ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - A bond has been set for a former school teacher accused of having inappropriate contact with a student.

Former James T. Alton Middle School teacher Anthony Durrant pleaded not guilty Thursday morning to a charge of sexual abuse.

He was taken into custody by Radcliff Police on Wednesday after police said Durrant touched a 13-year-old student on the buttocks on the school property April 12. Police also said the two were exchanging inappropriate texts the previous weekend and the teenager sent an explicit photo to Durrant.

Durrant is charged with sexual abuse and unlawful use of electronic means to engage in sexual or prohibited activities.

His bond was set at $25,000. Durrant is due back in court on Friday.
