The Cherokee County Sheriff's office said a Gaffney High School substitute teacher was arrested for sexual battery with a student. 

According to the sheriff's office, deputies were notified by the Cherokee County School District on April 11 of a potential inappropriate relationship between a student and substitute teacher. 

Deputies said 38-year-old Kelly Hawkins was arrested in connection with the incident. Investigators determined the incident occurred off campus and outside of school hours.

The student was 18-years-old, deputies said. 

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office is asking parents to speak with their children to see if they were a victim or have knowledge of Hawkins being involved with other students. 

Hawkins is currently being held at the Cherokee County Detention Center.
