Kentucky Teacher Guilty of Sex with Student

(Frankfort, Kentucky) A 30-something English teacher formerly at Franklin County High School, Carrie Staples Williams, has pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree unlawful transaction with a 17-year-old male student.
Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Zach Becker said Williams admitted to the inappropriate relationship, which occurred from September 2006 to January 2007 when she was 23 years old.

“There were emails documenting this,” Becker said, sent from Williams’ personal Hotmail account.[…]

It wasn’t until after the victim died this year that law enforcement was notified of the allegations.

“He did take his own life in the spring of this year,” Becker said. “…While his mother was going through his personal items, these previously referred to explicit emails were discovered.”

The victim’s mother then notified the current superintendent, Chrissy Jones, who immediately notified the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
Sentencing is scheduled for December 5.
