Teacher accused of sexually assaulting, enticing students surrenders

Marietta Police said a former Mt. Paran Christian School teacher accused of having sex with a student and attempting to entice another turned himself in late Friday night.

Christopher Wade Brown, 37, was dismissed from his job at the school on Stanley Road near Kennesaw on October 4. Brown is wanted for allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a 17-year-old student in July. Police said Brown also allegedly attempted to solicit sexual activity with a 16-year-old student of Roswell High School within the past month.

They say he took the teen to a park and kissed her.

Brown is facing charges of sexual assault by a teacher, influencing a witness and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

David Tilley, headmaster at Mt. Paran Christian School, located on Stanley Rd. in Cobb County, released this statement regarding the case:

The employment of Mr. Brown was terminated on October 4, 2016 immediately after the school learned that he had committed a violation of the standards of our Christian community. Mr. Brown was employed for one year to teach high school physics, chemistry, and computer science. The MPCS community pledges continued and full support with legal authorities as this matter is pursued. MPCS remains fully committed to a Christ-centered environment that takes very seriously its role in protecting the safety and well-being of all students.

A judge denied bond for Brown on Monday.
