Knox Gym Teacher Arrested on Child Seduction Charges

The Knox City Police Department continues to investigate an alleged improper internet contact incident between a Knox High School gym teacher and a student.

Police investigated a complaint last week where a parent reported the act. Robert “Ryan” Corbin, 27, of Knox, was arrested Sunday as a result of the preliminary investigation. He faces preliminary charges of Child Seduction and Attempted Child Seduction, both Class D Felonies. He is being held in the Starke County Jail under no bond.

Corbin is the Physical Education teacher at the High School and he is also the varsity boys and girls swim coach. No other information is being released at this time.

Knox Community School Superintendent A.J. Gappa said that Corporation officials are aware of the allegations and he has no comment at this time. The Superintendent, or any other school official, is not at liberty to comment on personnel issues.
