A 59-year-old Three Rivers man who previously taught in Constantine and Three Rivers was reprimanded at least a half dozen times for inappropriate behavior, according to personnel records detailing the employment of David Wing.

The documents, released by Constantine Public Schools in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, show the 59-year-old Wing agreed to surrender his teacher’s license in January 2013. In exchange, he received a $10,000 buyout, payment for unused sick and vacation time, and two additional years of retirement credit.

Wing, who was arrested at his residence July 12, faces three counts of criminal sexual conduct and a single charge of child sexually abusive activity.

The second-degree CSC incidents allegedly occurred in 2008 and 2009 in the first case, June 2014 in the second case and July 4 this year in the third case.

He is slated for a preliminary examination Thursday. Wing is free after posting $100,000 cash-surety bail.

Wing is represented by Three Rivers attorney Ron Grubbs.
