(BROWNSTOWN) - A Brownstown man working as a substitute teacher for Seymour Community Schools is facing a charge of child molesting.

Seymour police arrested 42-year-old Clayton Jon Hall Wednesday afternoon at his residence following an investigation into a complaint of "inappropriate actions" between an adult and a student at Cortland Elementary School.

According to Chief Bill Abbott, on Tuesday school resource officer Keith Williams was notified by Cortland principal Lori Lister of a complaint from a parent about "inappropriate" interactions involving a teacher and a child. That is what began the police investigation. Chief Abbott is not releasing the details of that investigation because it is ongoing.

Police did obtains a search warrant for William's home looking for child pornography, Abbott added.

Hall is being held without bond at the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown. He currently faces one count of child molesting, a Level 4 felony, but Abbott said that could change as the investigation progresses.

Hall has worked in other schools in the Seymour school district, but Abbott said he is not aware of any other complaints.
