BUSSEY (AP) -

A southern Iowa teacher has been accused of having a sexual relationship with a student.

Knoxville radio station KNIA reports (http://bit.ly/2o1NwMp ) that 61-year-old Alan Stewart, of Oskaloosa, is charged with sexual exploitation by a school employee. Online jail records say Stewart remained in Marion County custody Tuesday. Court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office says Stewart had sexual contact with a student during 2015. Stewart is listed as an industrial arts and physical education teacher at the Twin Cedars Community School District high school in Bussey. The district says Stewart has been placed on administrative leave.
