BRAXTON COUNTY, WV (WOWK) — A Braxton County High School teacher was arrested and charged with sexual abuse after he admitted to law enforcement that he was having a sexual relationship with a student, according to a criminal complaint.

The criminal complaint for 42-year-old Lee Given, of Flatwoods, says a school official became aware of a teacher – identified as Given – possibly being in a sexual relationship with a juvenile student.
