A Liberty High School teacher charged with lewd molestation appeared in court on Friday and entered a not guilty plea.
According to an arrest report, a 15-year old female student said she received inappropriate and suggestive text messages from teacher and coach Earl Tennial.
A couple of days later, she claims Tennial grabbed her, fondled her and kissed her while she was in his office. Tennial, 29, has bonded out of the Tulsa Co. Jail on a $75,000 bond.
Tennial initially did not show up for a court appearance and a warrant was issued, but he later appeared and entered a plea.
