Video shows students fondling each other in class

While reviewing video surveillance footage Friday, a teacher caught two Evans High School students inappropriately touching each other.

The culinary arts teacher told an assistant principal that she was reviewing footage from the camera in her room to investigate the report of a lost book bag when she saw the students fondling each other March 25, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report. In the video, it appeared the students were rubbing each other’s genital areas during class.

The assistant principal said she spoke to students who were sitting behind the couple and they confirmed what the video showed, according to the report.

The deputy spoke to the parents of both students and they did not want to pursue criminal charges.
