Parents in the West Carroll County School District in Tennessee got some disturbing news recently about a Melissa McCord, a 35 year old special education teacher. Apparently, Ms. McCord sent and received sexually explicit photos and notes to a 14 year old student who was dating allegedly dating McCord’s daughter. In addition and even more problematic, Ms. McCord had sex with the boy. Ms. McCord admits that she went to a park with the boy but denies that she had sex with the boy. Like most cases of this nature, if Ms. McCord sent and received e mails and / or text messages with photos with the boy, this will be strong evidence should the case go to trial. Of course, all criminal defendants, including Ms. McCord, have a right to representation and trial. In addition, Ms. McCord is innocent until proven guilty under the criminal justice system; however, the allegations as reported in Tennessee do not look good for Ms. McCord. If convicted, Ms. McCord will face a prison sentence. You can read more about this story at Tennessee Student Arrested for Having Sex with Teen Student.
