A Vina physical education teacher accused of having sex with a 17-year-old student has been suspended with pay.
The Franklin County Schools superintendent confirmed Monday that Sonny Tibbs has been placed on suspension with pay, pending the outcome of a Sheriff's Department investigation.
Investigators say Tibbs confessed to the crime.
He faces three counts of a school employee having sexual intercourse with a student.
