MILWAUKEE -- A teacher's aide at a Milwaukee school has been charged with sexual assault of a student, among other things.

Jason Price, 31, of Horicon, who was hired at Holy Redeemer Christian Academy, faces two counts of sexual assault of a student by school staff, one count of child enticement (sexual contact or intercourse), three counts of exposing a child to harmful material and one count of causing a child to view or listen to sexual activity.

In the criminal complaint, one 16-year-old victim said Price touched her inappropriately while on a bus, coming home from a school field trip. In another instance, the victim said Price pulled her into a locker room during a home basketball game at the school and sexually assaulted her. After it happened, Price allegedly told the victim "don't tell nobody."

Price was hired in September 2015. The alleged incidents happened in March and April 2016.

Price has also been accused of sending the same victim and three others explicit messages and images of himself on Facebook Messenger.

His bail is set at 10,000.

This is the fifth recent instance of a local teacher allegedly sexually assaulting a student. Here are the others:
