A Tennessee teacher was arrested on child sex charges last week.
Jonathan Ullrich,50 was arrested Monday by Maury County Deputies. He was charged with incest, eight counts of rape, nine counts of aggravated sexual battery, aggravated sexual exploitation of a child, and eight counts of rape of a child.
Ullrich was a first grade teacher at Fairview Elementary and had been named teacher of the year for 2020.
Although the incident did not involve any students at the elementary school he was placed on administrative leave without pay.
“The charges filed against Mr. Ullrich in Maury County are horrific. The district has no indication that any of the charges out of Maury County are related to his work in WCS. However, families who may have information to share with local law enforcement are encouraged to contact the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office.”
Ullrich was given a $200,000 bail. He is due back in court on January 4.
