— A former teacher in Hendersonville has been charged with having sex with a 17-year-old female student.

The Henderson County Sheriff's Office told local media that 29-year-old Devon Ross Lategan of Apex was charged Wednesday with one count of sexual activity with a student last June.

Lategan was then a teacher at West Henderson High School.

Lategan was arrested in Wake County. Lategan was working this year at Athens Drive High School in Raleigh. It was not immediately clear whether he has been suspended from the job in Raleigh. It was also unknown whether Lategan has an attorney.

Authorities say additional charges may be filed.
