4th Grade Teacher Accused of Raping 12-Year-Old Student

A fourth-grade teacher in Covington, Tennessee, was arrested last week after allegations that she raped a 12-year-old boy who used to be her student in his residence.
On August 24, the Tennessee Department of Children Services informed the Criminal Investigation Division at the Covington Police Department that they had received a report about the alleged rape of a youngster. They reported that the alleged sexual abuse happened between a teacher and a 12-year-old boy who used to be her student, and they believed it happened at the boy’s home. The authorities began to investigate the claims.
According to reports, the woman, who initially taught fifth grade at Crestview Elementary School and took a new position this year teaching fourth grade English/Language arts at Charger Academy, was suspended without pay by the school district because of the accusations.
During their investigation so far, the police have reportedly found out that the woman was forming personal relationships with several children by interacting online in video games and on social media. When they became more comfortable, the woman allegedly sent sexually inappropriate pictures to the youngsters. Some of the children reportedly said she tried to get them to do sexual things with her.
According to a press release from the Covington Police Department, the woman admitted that she had inappropriate online interactions with the kids. The investigators believe there are additional victims.
On September 8, the woman was taken into custody and booked into the Tipton County Jail. Currently, she may be charged with one count of rape of a child. She is being held in lieu of a $25,000 bond, and it is reported that additional charges may be added.
