FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. A 26-year-old Forsyth County man working as a paraprofessional at a Forsyth County middle school was arrested Dec. 5 and charged with one count of sexual battery against a minor.

Forsyth County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division Major Dan Jagoe said the Forsyth County School system contacted the sheriff's office Monday, Dec. 3 after a Riverwatch Middle School student made an outcry to officials.

An investigation was launched immediately.

"As a result of the investigation, we made an arrest today," Jagoe said.

Marvin Shane Pilcher, 26, of Suwanee, was arrested and charged with one count of sexual battery on a minor.

Pilcher is being held in the Forsyth County Detention Center with no bond.

"Forsyth County Schools takes allegations of this nature very seriously," said Jennifer Caracciolo, a school system spokeswoman. "The safety and security of our students is our number one priority.

Forsyth County Schools will not tolerate this type of behavior for its employees."

The investigation is ongoing.

Update: The charge against Marvin Shane Pilcher has not been dropped. He was charged with sexual battery against a minor. That is still the charge. He was released from the Forsyth County Detention Center on 12-7-12 at 8:05 p.m. on a $5,610 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Superior Court on Jan. 2, 2013.

    The charges were modified not dropped. My understanding was to Battery which means he put his hands on someone. There may not be a link. These papers report what they find when the go check the new bookings at the jail they dont check the releases.

    I'd like to see the facts and evidence.

    Why were charges degraded from a "sexual" battery to a simple battery? Did the accuser change his/her story? Was there video or were their witnesses to the event?

    We are all naturally inclined to rush to the defense of a defenseless minor and make conclusions without all the evidence up front, and the vast majority of the time the accusations are true. But it doesn't negate the fact that some adults have had their lives ruined by false accusations and being charged for something that didn't happen.
