Former Nashville teacher facing sex charges

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Metro Nashville say a former teacher facing sex charges has been arrested.

A statement from police says 57-year-old David G. Turner was arrested Monday night after a grand jury returned a 14-count indictment charging him with aggravated sexual battery against two juveniles. Both were under the age of 10.

The children were students at Donelson Christian Academy, where Turner taught until police began investigating the allegations earlier this year. He was suspended after the investigation began in February. The students accused Turner of inappropriate touching.

It was unclear whether Turner had an attorney.
