SPRING HILL, TN (WSMV) -

A Maury County father is angry that an 18-year-old student at Spring Hill High School, charged with sexually assaulting his daughter, is back in school.

Austin Seager was arrested and charged as an adult, with sexual battery.

Shawn Daniels says his daughter was attacked more than once on a school bus.

"Tried to put his hands down my daughters shirt, in her pants. She told him 'no,'" said Daniels.

It was a pattern that Daniels said continued in October 2011. Daniels said he pressed charges for his daughters protection. Seager was arrested in December.

The question Daniels can't get answered from Maury County school officials is why Seager was allowed back in school. Daniels said his daughter often comes home from school in tears because she is being harassed.  

"I've asked them a number of times, they tell me he hasn't been convicted of the crime. Yet my daughter comes home in tears," said Daniels.

Daniels said he just wants a safe environment for his daughter at school. Channel 4 News reached out to the Maury County schools director, but our calls went answered.
