A teacher in Missouri, was arrested after girls told police that their teacher touched their private parts and breasts.

39-year-old Rodney Thomas was fired from his job as teaching junior high math. He was also fired from his position as a wrestling coach in the Maysville School District.

Police began their investigation one month ago, after a girl reported him to school officials, who called authorities.

Officers learned that Thomas sexually abused ten students who are between 13 and 17 years old.

The alleged abuse took place on school property in Maysville.

The 17-year-old girl told police that Thomas touched her breasts at least six times and her genitals at least twice, and he told her about his sexual dreams that involved her.

She also claimed that the teacher sodomized her.

A 15-years-old girl told police that Thomas touched her backside, stared at her, and told her: “G**damn you are going to get me fired.”

The 13 and 14-year-old girls told police about how their teacher pulled them close to himself and touched them in a sexual way while helping them with their math problems.

Thomas was charged 20 felonies, including statutory sodomy and sexual contact with a student. His bail was set at $150,000.
