KINGMAN, Ariz. – Thomas Schueren can kiss the public’s trust, and possibly his teaching career, goodbye.
Schueren, 32, an instructor at Kingman High School, was arrested Wednesday and charged with misdemeanor assault after a month long investigation into a former student’s allegation of inappropriate contact, Fox5Vegas.com reports.
“According to deputies, a 17-year-old male student claimed Schueren kissed him two years ago when he was a sophomore,” according to the news site. The alleged incident occurred in a drama class, according to reports. The report did not make it clear whether Schueren is a drama teacher.
A female student has made similar allegations about Schueren, but no charges have been filed regarding that alleged incident.
Schueren is currently lodged in the Mohave County Jail.
