Posted: Updated:

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- A substitute teacher was accused of having sex with a 17-year-old student and a 15-year-old student who attend Ashley Ridge High School, according to a report from the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office.

According to the report, an officer was called to the school's office on Wednesday after the 17-year-old student told school officials that she had engaged in sex with the teacher, identified as 22-year-old William Baber.

She told officers that she did not want to have sex with him, but did anyway.

The arrest warrant shows that the alleged sexual interactions happened between Dec. 17 and April 24. The warrant also states that Baber and the student met while he was serving as a substitute for one of her classes.

The warrant does not say how the relationship between teacher and student escalated to sex.

Baber is accused of assaulting the second student, according to an affidavit, between Jan. 23 and April 6 of this year. The affidavit says Baber used Facebook to arrange meetings with the student "with the intent of performing a sexual activity."

For that, he is charged with criminal solicitation of a minor.

School district officials said they were still gathering information on the case, but Baber's name had been pulled from the roster of eligible substitutes until the case was resolved.

In a bond court hearing THursday afternoon, Baber's bond was set at $70,000. The sheriff's office is still investigating.
