Fairfield Schools Superintendent Billy Smith issued a statement that read: “The district believes that Mr. Conrad’s conduct constitutes ground for termination. He is being suspended without pay and benefits during the pendency of termination proceedings. We have no additional comment at this time.”
Conrad, 26, of Victor Court in Hamilton, turned himself in to deputies in Butler County Common Pleas Court minutes before his arraignment in Judge Keith Spaeth’s courtroom.
The investigation began when Fairfield police were contacted by Butler County Children Services about possible illegal activity between a Fairfield High School teacher and student. Police opened an investigation, advised school administrators of the allegations.
The alleged activity happened between Conrad and a 16-year-old female student between Aug. 16 and Oct. 9, according to the indictment.
A pretrial hearing has been set for Dec.14. Davidson declined comment after his arraignment.
