— A former volunteer for the Halifax County School District has been accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 13-year-old girl.

The Halifax County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that Wilson Eugene Fleming, 58, of Roanoke Rapids, was jailed under a $30,000 bond on a felony charge of indecent liberties with a minor.

The crime, which is alleged to have happened in Roanoke Rapids on Feb. 2, did not happen on school property, authorities said. Fleming, however, did have contact with the girl at a school, authorities said.

Fleming's first court appearance is scheduled for April 15. Investigators released no other details about the case.
