Days after resigning his post as vocation ag instructor and FFA advisor at Scotland County R-I High School, Corey Stott, 37, of Arbela, was arrested on sexual misconduct charges.

He faces a class D felony charge of sexual misconduct with a student on public school property, related to a May incident in a SCR-I classroom. He also was charged with a class C misdemeanor of sexual conduct in the third degree for allegedly soliciting the student to engage in sexual conduct.
