Second person alleges relationship with teacher

CANTON, Ga. (AP) - A second former student says she had a sexual
relationship with a Cherokee High School teacher.

Cherokee County sheriff's Sgt. Jay Baker says authorities arrested Matthew Gantz, a 41-year-old drama teacher, last weekafter a former student said she had sex with Gantz in 2007 when she was 17. Gantz was charged with sexual assault of a person in custody and evidence tampering.

Baker says detectives filed additional counts of sexual assault of a person in custody on Tuesday stemming from the second claim of a sexual relationship, in 2005.

Cherokee County school system spokesman Mike McGowan says Gantz resigned Monday.
