KERNERSVILLE — The Diocese of Charlotte said it has fired a veteran teacher at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School after investigating claims of abuse by a former student.
The diocese did not identify the teacher. In September, when the diocese announced that it had suspended the teacher, the diocese said the teacher had worked at the school for 17 years.
The incident allegedly happened in 2001 at the teacher's home. Neither the diocese nor the school provided any more details about what happened. The diocese said the teacher had passed a background check and had completed required sexual abuse awareness training.
