Tarpon Springs, Florida -- A teacher with an alleged history of touching female students has been removed from the classroom.

Richard Wisemiller, a teacher at Tarpon Springs Middle School, is being investigated for a number of inappropriate activities that date back 14 years. But it wasn't until this month that school officials pulled the plug.

"April 10th was his last day in a classroom after a female student came forward with allegations that he touched her inappropriately, but we still need to follow procedure," said Pinellas County Schools spokesperson Sharee Gilbert.

When faced with the suspension, Wisemiller said he would retire in lieu of being fired.
