A teacher at Walker Valley High School was freed after posting $10,000 bond Tuesday after she turned herself in at the Bradley County Jail on a charge of sexual battery by an authority figure.

Christie N. David, 32, a social studies teacher, was indicted by a Bradley County Grand Jury after an investigation of her alleged involvement with a former student, a 15-year-old male.

The Criminal Investigations Division of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office began investigation Sept. 27, according to Bob Gault, media relations coordinator for BCSO.

David was suspended from her teaching position Oct. 3., according to Bradley County Director of Schools Johnny McDaniel.

Findings of the investigation were presented in a session of the Bradley County Grand Jury and an indictment was issued accusing David of having an inappropriate relationship with her former student.

“Findings of the investigation were presented in a session of the Bradley County Grand Jury and an indictment was issued accusing David of having an inappropriate relationship with a male, a 15-year-old former student,” Gault noted.

"As this is a criminal matter, we would now refer all further questions to the District Attorney's office," McDaniel said.

According to information provided by Bradley County Schools Central Office, “David taught social studies in Bradley County Schools at Lake Forest Middle School from 2004-2008. She was rehired in October 2011, at Walker Valley High School as an interim language arts teacher. She was hired in a permanent position at WVHS in August 2012.”

Bradley County Criminal Court officials said David will appear in court for arraignment Nov. 19.
