Former Hart County High School paraprofessional arrested for sexual assault

By Caleb Hutchins Assistant News Director

A now-former paraprofessional at Hart County High School has been arrested on charges of sexual assault.

A release from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Wednesday morning said the agency was asked by the Hartwell Police Department to help investigate a child molestation allegation on April 11. That investigation ultimately led to the arrest of Keenan Anderson, age 27 of Bowersville, the following day on April 12.

No details about the allegations have been released, but GBI officials said they regarded alleged incidents that occurred while Anderson was employed at the high school. Anderson has since resigned and has been booked into the Hart County Jail.

Anderson is facing four charges in total, with one count of sexual assault by persons with supervisory or disciplinary authority, two counts of attempt to commit the former crime and one count of tampering with evidence.

The GBI is continuing to investigate Anderson, and anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the agency either through their website or by calling their regional Athens office at 706-552-2309 or their anonymous tip line at 1-800-597-8477.
