Starmont School Employee Arrested for Sexual Relationship with Student

A Starmont school employee has been arrested for having a sexual relationship with a student.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says 29-year old Joshua Raymond Brown of Lamont has been charged with four felony counts of Sexual Exploitation by a School Employee.

Investigators with the Fayette and Buchanan County Sheriff’s Offices say they were notified of a potential sexual encounter between a contracted school employee and a 16-year old female student at Starmont. After a month long investigation, they discovered that the two were involved in a sexual relationship for the past two months.

Brown has been employed by the Starmont Community School District for seven years as a contract IT personnel.

Brown turned himself in to authorities early Thursday. He has placed bond and will be summoned into court at a later date.
