GREENVILLE Co., S.C. (WSPA)–A former Greer High School teacher and coach has been charged with sexual battery of a student.

Elizabeth Heaton Taylor, 27, of Simpsonville has been charged with giving false information to police and two counts of sexual battery with a student 16 or 17 years of age.

Taylor was a biology teacher and track coach for Greer High School at the time of the alleged crimes.
