ST. CLOUD, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say an Osceola County school employee has been charged with multiple counts of sexual battery involving an underage victim.

St. Cloud Police Sgt. Denise Roberts tells local media outlets that 35-year-old Sara B. Moore was arrested at her home Sunday. Roberts says Moore is charged with 10 counts of sexual battery by custodial victim upon a person between 12 years and 18 years of age.

Police say Moore is a paraprofessional employee of St. Cloud Middle School.

Police say during the investigation, the victim told authorities about several sexual encounters at Moore's home and other locations in St. Cloud.

Moore was taken to the Osceola County Jail, where she was being held without bond. It isn't immediately clear if she has an attorney.
