Teacher Arrested in Sex Sting

Knoxville (WVLT) - A Sevier County elementary school teacher and youth minister has been charged with indecent exposure during a sting in Knoxville.

According to the News Sentinel, 46-year-old Kent Steven Armstrong was suspended last month, after Sevier County Board of Education leaders learned of his arrest.

Knoxville Police say Armstrong exposed himself in front of an undercover officer in Tyson Park.

The school board plans to decide Armstrong’s future at Seymour Primary School, soon after next week's court appearance.
