A Palm Beach County teacher has been arrested after he reportedly had a sexual relationship with a minor.
41-year-old Daniel Norment was arrested around 5:00 p.m. Tuesday following an investigation of the incident that occurred two years ago.
While many details about the incident have not been made public, officials reported that the victim was 16 or 17-years-old at the time of the incident.

Norment was a math teacher at Independence Middle School in Jupiter when the incident occurred. According to a letter to parents from Principal Amber Saunders, Norment was reassigned to a “non-student contact position away from the school in March.”
On Wednesday, a judge set Norment’s bond at $100,000.
“He faces two felony charges relating to unlawful sex with a minor.”
