Cincinnati Police arrested on Monday a Cincinnati Public Schools teacher on a sexual battery charge. 

Police said Michael A. Johnson, 46, of Forest Park, had sexual contact with one of his students. 

Johnson is a high school teacher, according to a complaint filed in Hamilton County Municipal Court. The alleged offense happened on May 22. 

Sexual battery is a third degree felony. 

Johnson appeared in court Tuesday for his arraignment. The defense argued that the student was of legal age for consent but the state responded that the teacher was in a position of power over the alleged victim.

Bond was set at $10,000.
