More charges have been filed against a former Johnston County teacher.

Clayton police said Friday that another victim, who has not been identified, has now come forward with sexual assault claims against 29-year-old Paul Canally.

Detectives have charged Canally with four felonious counts of indecent liberties with a minor.

Last week, authorities arrested Canally and charged him with five felonious counts of statutory rape, five felonious counts of indecent liberties with a child and eight misdemeanor counts of sexual battery.

The next day, police filed additional charges against the former teacher after a second victim came forward. He was charged with two counts of statutory rape and soliciting a child by computer after allegedly messaging the victim on Facebook.

All three victims have been between the ages of 13 and 16-years-old and are not related to Canally. The incidents allegedly took place during April 2010 and December 2011.

Canally is a former science teacher at Archer Lodge Middle School. He also worked as a summer camp counselor.

He is currently at the Johnston County Jail under more than a $2,000,000 bond.
