A teacher in the Frewsburg Central School District is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old student.

New York State Police arrested Steven Hess, of Jamestown, Tuesday after a Frewsburg school official notified officers of a possible relationship.

Police say an investigation led them to believe Hess engaged in inappropriate touching with the student from April 2016 through May 2016 on school grounds.

Hess is charged with sexual abuse, forcible touching, and endangering the welfare of a child.
