PRESS RELEASE

On December 22, 2019, it was reported to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office that a juvenile student who attends West Rowan Middle School had been receiving and sending inappropriate messages with a male staff member. The teacher, 29 year old Ethan Andrew Grose, had been communicating with the student via social media apps. The communication was found to have begun in early December of 2019, and continued up until it was reported to law enforcement by the victim’s family.

During the investigation, sexually explicit images were found to have been exchanged between the teacher & student. Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Detectives met with Grose at his home on December 23rd, and he confessed to having the inappropriate conversations with the student, and exchanging pornographic images. Grose was arrested, and charged with Indecent Liberties with a Minor. He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 secured bond. The case remains active, and investigation will continue.
