A Mountain Home middle school gym teacher is accused of sexually abusing a child.
Grant Alyn Bothen, 42, has been on leave from Hacker Middle School since late May, when Boise police started investigating reports that he'd sexually abused a girl at a home in the city between January and May.
The girl is not associated with Bothen's teaching duties or his job as a coach in the Mountain Home School District, said Superintendent Tim McMurtrey.
Bothen turned himself into the Ada County Jail Wednesday afternoon after Ada County prosecutors issued a $50,000 warrant for his arrest on a felony charge of sexual abuse of a child under 16. He was out of jail as of Thursday.
McMurtrey said Bothen has been with the school district "for a while" but didn't know exactly how long.
