Former Horry Co. sub teacher charged with student sex

CONWAY, SC (AP) - A Galivants Ferry man who worked as a substitute teacher at Aynor High School has been indicted on charges of having sex with a student.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported the grand jury in Horry County indicted 33-year-old Jerry David Love Jr., on sexual battery charges.

The indictment says a 16-year-old student told school administrators she had a sexual relationship with Love between May of 2012 and March of 2013.

The teenager admitted the relationship to school officials on March 11, saying it began by accident when she mistakenly touched him on the ride home from a church trip.

The report states in the time they were together, Love would pick the teen up from school in the afternoons, take her to an abandoned golf course for sex, and return her before a parent arrived to pick her up.

News of the relationship surfaced when two other teen girls at the same school began receiving emails from Jerry Love - emails they reported to school administrators in early March.

Horry County schools spokeswoman Teal Harding says Love was removed from the substitute teacher list. Harding says none of the alleged activity occurred at school.

It was not clear if Love has an attorney.
