A Charleston County teacher is on administrative leave pending a state investigation into accusations he had sex with a student while teaching in West Virginia.

The South Carolina Board of Education on Wednesday, Oct. 31, suspended the teaching license of Jack G. Dailey, a business applications instructor at Baptist Hill High School in Hollywood.

The suspension comes in light of Dailey's West Virginia teaching license being permanently revoked five days prior on Oct. 26.

Dailey's license was revoked in West Virginia because he failed to show up for a hearing related to accusations he had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student there.

Dailey was also accused of providing inaccurate employment information on his application with the West Virginia Dept. of Education, according to South Carolina's suspension order.

Documents related to Dailey's suspension show he was placed on administrative leave by the Charleston County School District on October 8, 2018.

The state has ordered Dailey's license remain suspended pending a hearing and until the matter is resolved.

A West Virginia phone number attributed to Dailey was flagged as disconnected when ABC News 4 attempted to reach him for comment Friday night.

ABC News 4 has requested documentation related to Dailey's license revocation from the West Virginia Dept. of Education.
