NASHVILLE, TN (WRCB) -- A grand jury in Nashville has indicted a former Hamilton County teaching assistant on sixty counts of child rape and sexual battery.

Forty year old Ronald Boykin is accused of having sexual contact with four students at Donelson Middle School. Boykin is held on $100,000 bond while he waits for trial.

In all, here are the indictments for Boykin:

  • 33 counts of sexual battery by an authority figure
  • 14 counts of rape without consent
  • 13 counts of statutory rape

UPDATE 4/3

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A judge in Nashville has dismissed one of the child sex charges against a public school teacher who is accused in two cities.

Ronald Boykin faces charges involving minors in Nashville and Chattanooga.

On Thursday, as Boykin appeared in court at Nashville, the judge threw out one of three counts against him when - according to The Tennessean - prosecutors attributed statements in the warrant to the wrong alleged victim.

General Sessions Judge Dan Eisenstein threw out a statutory rape warrant and said he would consider sexual battery charges Friday.

Boykin is charged in Chattanooga with rape and sexual battery by an authority figure when he was employed at a Hamilton County high school.

Ronal Boykin's past started to unravel when Metro police pulled him over a week ago and discovered warrants for his arrest in 2006 in Chattanooga on rape and sexual battery by an authority figure.

So how did he get hire and worked for two years at Donelson Middle School?

He went through all the background checks and there was no indication on any checks that were done that there was anything in his background.

The TBI says it is because Boykin was charged in Hamilton County, but never arrested and fingerprinted.
