HALIFAX COUNTY (WSLS 10) – A Halifax County High teacher has been arrested on sex charges.
Keith Wayne Arendall was arrested on Friday for a charge of forcible sodomy, which allegedly happened on August 16.
According to the Halifax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court clerk’s office, this case is scheduled for advisement on Tuesday.
Arendall was arrested on August 26 for a misdemeanor charge of disseminating images of someone who was completely naked.
He went before a judge in Halifax Co. general district court on September 8 for the charge. The case was transferred to another jurisdiction and he was released on summons.
Arendall was appointed as a non-tenured teacher at the Halifax County School Board’s July 11 meeting according to the meeting minutes.
He is listed as a teacher secretary on the high school’s website.
The Halifax County Superintendent of Schools said Wednesday that this is a “personnel issue” and she cannot comment any further.
Arendall is currently being held at the Halifax County Adult Detention Center.
