IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. - An Iredell-Statesville Schools teacher is accused of touching students inappropriately, the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
Neil David Krasnigor, 57, was a teacher at Mount Mourne IB School when the report was filed on March 27.
Krasnigor is charged with seven counts of indecent liberties with a minor and one count of assault on a female.
There were three victims between 12 and 14 years old, officials said.
Krasnigor was arrested Wednesday by the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office and was given a $100,000 secure bond.
His attorney released the following statement regarding the charges against him:
"Mr. Krasnigor adamantly denies the charges. He has dedicated his career to excellence in education and is stunned by these allegations. We look forward to a trial as soon as we can get one."
A spokesperson with Iredell-Statesville Schools said Krasnigor has been suspended with pay. He’s worked with the district since 2005.
