Teacher Facing New Sex Charge After Third Student Comes Forward
SUMTER, S.C. (AP) — A Sumter middle school teacher is facing a new sex charge after a third student has come forward.
Sumter County Sheriff’s investigators say 31-year-old Elizabeth Moss was taken back into custody Tuesday and charged with criminal solicitation of a minor.
Moss had been released from jail on a $150,000 bond Friday. She had been charged with inappropriately communicating with students online and performing sex acts on at least one of the students.
School officials say they found messages from Moss to students on Facebook and contacted investigators.
Last week, her attorney Rose Mary Parham said the allegations were revenge for Moss disciplining students.
