A teacher at Oldham-Ramona high school has been charged with the rape of an 8-year old in 2010 when he was a city commissioner in Canton.

37-year old Jeff Nolte has been charged with two counts of first degree rape of a child and one count of sexual contact with a child who was just 8-years old at the time of the incidents.

Nolte is free on bond, but faces life in prison if convicted.
