Lexington County investigators are searching for an elementary school teacher suspected of criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Hianlucas Isturiz Rodriguez, 40, engaged in sexual battery with a Red Bank Elementary School student multiple times while on duty at the school, according to arrest warrants. Detectives have obtained warrants charging Rodriguez with two counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
