SPRINGVILLE, Utah (ABC4) – A teacher in the Nebo School District has been charged with sexual battery in a lawsuit that has taken months to develop after an initial complaint.
Brian Fredrickson, a 42-year-old who was employed as a teacher at Springville High School, was charged with sexual battery, a Class A misdemeanor, for alleged behavior that occurred between himself and a female at his home in Spanish Fork.
