MARION COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — A former volunteer coach and bus driver was arrested for sex with a student earlier last week.

29-year-old Ethan Corkren is facing a charge of school employee sex with a student. He was a volunteer coach and bus driver for Brilliant School.

Corkren was arrested on September 12.

The Marion County Schools Superintendent, Ann West, tells CBS 42 she was made aware of the situation on Wednesday, September 4. Corkren was immediately put on administrative leave and a substitute bus driver was hired for the rest of the week.

Corkren turned in his resignation letter on Monday, September 9. He is no longer an employee of the Marion County Board of Education and will not be permitted to volunteer coach, according to West.

Since his arrest, Corkren has since bonded out.
