Former teacher investigated for misconduct involving male students

Posted: Updated:

YAZOO COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - A private school teacher in Yazoo County is being looked at for his alleged involvement in inappropriate behavior with male teenage students.

According to Yazoo County Sheriff Tommy Vaughn, Richard Darden checked himself into a treatment facility Friday.

That is the same day Manchester Academy alerted law enforcement about the long time teacher's misconduct with students off campus.

The sheriff's department is interviewing male students that average the age of 16 years old.

Manchester Academy's headmaster, Bryan Dendy, would only say that Darden resigned from his position.
