A Suring High School teacher is charged with six felonies and faces more than 36 years in prison, after being accused of sexually assaulting a student.

According to the Suring School District's web site, Timothy Grimes, who is now 24-years-old, is a History teacher at the high school and a coach.

Court documents say investigators spoke with the 17-year-old victim last week about what she said happened between her and Grimes, who is a teacher, coach and friend of her stepfather. 

The victim told investigators Grimes came over to her house often and stayed the night frequently because he was friends with her stepfather as they coached sports together. 

She said the assaults started in April when Grimes came into her room while her parents were sleeping and began sexually assaulting her. She told investigators this happened 10-20 times in April and May of 2018. 

She said she felt scared and didn't want to tell her parents.

According to court documents, at one point, the victim’s uncle found Grimes in her bed. At that time, she says things changed and Grimes was no longer able to stay over at their house. 

According to court documents, the victim told investigators Grimes had been hanging around with other students drinking and swimming and she saw on social media that he was allegedly hanging out with kids that just graduated saying things like, "Now it's ok since they are out of school and old enough”. 
Grimes was in court Tuesday, cash bond was set at $15,000. He cannot have contact with the victim or her family, no contact with Suring School District property, absolute sobriety, and no contact with any minors without adult supervision.

NBC26 did reach out to the Oconto County Sheriff's Office, they tell us they're not ready to comment at this time -- but they do plan on releasing more information Wednesday, along with the Suring School District.
