Alabama Teacher Gets Jail for Student Sex

(Selma, Alabama) A teacher formerly at Selma High School, LaTangela Williams, has pleaded guilty to engaging in sex with two students.

As a result, Williams accepted a plea deal where she will spend 14 months in jail in addition to 3 years of probation.

Chief Administrative Officer and acting Superintendent of the Selma City School System, Larry DiChaiara, issued the following:
"While I am pleased with the outcome, Ms. Williams is very fortunate to receive the sentence that she received. When I heard the outcome, my heart went immediately to those students who were the victims of her actions while under her care. That is where my thoughts are today. In addition to the sentence, based on the criminal charges and her plea of guilt, she will also have her teaching certificate revoked and never be able to work with children again in our schools. It is my hope that this verdict sends a strong message to anybody who is entrusted with our children that this kind of behavior will never again be tolerated."
Williams begins her sentence on April 11.
