EAST ST. LOUIS — St. Clair County officials have charged an East St. Louis high school security guard with having sex with a minor.

The St. Clair County Sheriff's Department said Thursday that 42-year-old Isaac Turner was charged Aug. 8 with one count of criminal sexual assault involving a 16-year-old girl in 2012.

He was arrested on Wednesday and booked in county jail. A St. Clair County judge set his bond at $100,000.

Turner had been a security guard at East St. Louis Senior High School. It wasn't immediately clear how long he had been working there.

The Belleville News-Democrat couldn't reach a District 189 spokesman for comment Thursday.

It wasn't immediately clear if Turner has an attorney.
