State suspends license of Stall High chorus teacher accused of sex with student

State suspends teaching license of Joshua Radecke, Stall High chorus teacher accused of sex with student (WCIV)

The South Carolina Board of Education has suspended the teaching license of a Lowcountry teacher accused of having sex with one of his students.

The state board of education issued a summary suspension this week for Joshua Radecke's license while authorities investigate charges of sexual battery of a student made against him.

Radecke was arrested Thursday, Nov. 29. He has since been released from the Al Cannon Detention Center after posting $20,000 bond.

Friday morning, Nov. 30, a judge ordered Radecke not to have contact with the victim.

Court documents say Radecke in January and May of this year had a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old chorus student at Stall High School in North Charleston.

The report also says the teen told authorities they would have "physical relations" in the school's mobile class room and in his car when he took her home.

The student is no longer at Stall.

Radecke is on administrative leave. He was the chorus director at Stall High School.

His biography on the school web page said he had taught in the Lowcountry for 12 years.
