NEW INFORMATION: Former Abbotsford teacher faces new charges

NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A former Abbotsford High School teacher accused of having sexual contact with students is now facing new charges.

Prosecutors filed the most recent charges against Andy Follen, 25, of Spencer on Friday. A warrant was also issued for his arrest. Investigators say Follen called a girl last month, and asked her to set up an account on an online game where instant messages can be sent between users. Follen is accused of telling the girl through the messages that he would deny some of the accusations against him, and hoped the girl would help him out. Investigators say he also told the girl he loves her, wanted to see her again before she turns 18, and wants to be with her.

One of the conditions of Follen's bond is that he has no contact with the girl.
