A teacher at a Killeen elementary school has been arrested for inappropriate conduct with a student, according to police. 

Killeen PD said that a teacher at Iduma Elementary, Thomas Cannon, had inappropriate contact with a student. 

According to the Killeen ISD superintendent, Dr. John Craft, Cannon was removed from a classroom and prohibited from returning until an investigation was completed. 

In the investigation, a juvenile had disclosed that Cannon had inappropriate physical contact with them. 

Cannon was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. 

On Aug. 2, the case was presented to the Grand Jury and multiple indictments were issued charging 42-year-old Cannon with a total of four counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child and three counts of Indecency of a Child by Contact. Cannon is in the Bell County Jail with a current bond of $800,000.
