MERAUX, La. (WWL)– A college student serving as a student teacher is in jail Thursday after authorities said he touched an elementary student inappropriately.

Officials said Remy Ferrell, 24, was arrested after several parents who learned about the misconduct, brought their concerns to the school. A release said Ferrell had been a student teacher at Joseph Davies Elementary since August. Authorities said Ferrell touched the child on the outside of the clothing.

More victims may come forward, officials said. As of Thursday night, Ferrell only faced one count of felony sexual battery.

Authorities said the investigation is still ongoing, and a bond hearing was set for Friday.
