Union, MO (KSDK) - Sheriff Gary Toelke with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office confirms a Union Middle School teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting a child.

Toelke says 37-year-old Traci A. Storie has been charged with two counts of statutory sodomy and one count of tampering with a witness.

Authorities say the incident happened earlier this year after school and not on school property. The victim is under 14-years-old but was not one of her students.

The school district placed Storie on paid suspension after the accusation.

She was arrested Tuesday night and released on $25,000 bond.
