Ex-school administrator charged with sex assault in Georgia

WATKINSVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A former high school administrator has been charged with multiple sex crimes in three Georgia counties.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said 34-year-old Ryan Rickard was arrested Friday and charged with sexual assault, sexual battery and rape. The GBI said in a news release it had identified three former students who had been Rickard's victims.

Rickard had served as an assistant principal at Morgan County High School before he resigned earlier this year. He previously had been a teacher at North Oconee High School in Watkinsville and at Memorial Middle School in Conyers.

The charges were filed in Oconee, Morgan and Walton counties in northern Georgia.

It was not immediately known if Rickard had an attorney to represent him.
