A St Catherine-based teacher who is charged with sexual impropriety against a student has been granted bail.

The 40-year-old teacher, who resides in Linstead, St Catherine, was granted bail in the sum of $500,000 when he appeared before the St Catherine Parish Court on Tuesday.

Allegations are that the teacher got sexually involved with a female student, who is under 16 years old.

In court, the teacher was represented by Valrie Neita-Robertson who made the successful bail application on his behalf. He has been told not to have any contact with the complainant or the witnesses in the matter.

He is scheduled to reappear in court on Valentine's day when the matter will again be mentioned.
