The Marion County Prosecutor has charged Tyler Carmichael, a former teacher at Speedway High School and track coach, with child seduction and sexual battery according to media reports. A former student of Carmichael’s claims he touched and kissed her while she was at a friend’s house in November last year. Court documents state the girl pushed Carmichael away and reminded him of his wife and kids but he “continued to be very persistent”.
