Morrow High School student arrested on sexual assault charge

Posted: Updated:

A spokesperson for Clayton County Schools said a student was sexually assaulted by another student at Morrow High School on Monday.

The female victim told a teacher it happened in an isolated part of the campus, according to Clayton County Schools spokesperson Dave Waller.

Waller said the teacher immediately notified the school resource officer, and the officer was able to substantiate the student's allegation with the help of surveillance video.

Terrell Gardner was arrested and charged with disruption of a public school and sexual assault.

Gardner will be suspended for 10 days, however, administrative officials will request a tribunal hearing for Gardner.

The tribunal will determine if Gardner will allowed back to school, moved to alternative school or expelled.

Parents were not notified about the assault.

Clayton County Schools officials said they only notify parents when an incident occurs that poses a danger to other students, and the district felt that it was an isolated incident.
