Teacher at Chandler middle school accused of molestationPosted: Updated:
CHANDLER - A middle school teacher in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler has been arrested on charges of child molestation.
D. Ryan Jones is accused of molesting a 10-year-old girl at his Tempe home last summer.
Police reports say the 35-year-old admitted to touching the girl's genitals on two separate occasions on June 6 and 7.
He is being held on suspicion of three counts of molestation of a child and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.
Jones taught social studies at Andersen Junior High. The school sent a letter to parents yesterday explaining the arrest and said the girl was not a student at the school.
