TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — A former teacher accused of illegal sexual contact with a student has been indicted. Former Tupelo High School teacher Braden Bishop remains free on $100,000 bail pending a court appearance in March. The 36-year-old Bishop was arrested last fall and charged with two counts of sexual battery and five counts of child molestation. Officials say he had a 10-month relationship with a Tupelo High student that began when she was 16. Bishop's lawyer, Tony Farese, confirms the indictment but says he can't comment on specifics. A 10-year-teacher, Bishop taught broadcast journalism and was sports information director. A judge ruled earlier that there was probable cause to arrest Bishop, a step required before charges can be filed in Mississippi against some people, including teachers.
