Shelby County Sheriff's Deputies arrested a teacher from a private school in Byhalia, Mississippi Friday for having sexual contact with one of his students.

Detectives charged Ronald Nichols, 37, of Olive Branch, Mississippi, with sexual battery by an authority figure.

Nichols is a teacher at Grace Baptist School in Byhalia, Mississippi.

Officials said Nichols went to the South-East Shelby County home of one of his female students last Friday afternoon.  No one but the girl was at home during the teacher's visit.

The girl told investigators that Nichols is her math teacher, and that during their visit he kissed and fondled her.

Nichols is currently being held at the Shelby County Jail.  He is scheduled to appear in court next week.
