LAFAYETTE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A teacher with the Lafayette County School District has been charged with the enticement of a child to meet for sexual purposes, stated Lafayette Investigator Alan Wilburn.

On June 4, the Lafayette County Sheriff's Department received a complaint from the Lafayette County School superintendent about a teacher allegedly having improper conduct with a student.

Lafayette County investigators, as well as the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, looked into the allegations.

Today, June 20, an affidavit was filed on Molly Wray of Oxford.

She is listed as a teacher at Lafayette County High School on the district's website.

She has not been arrested, but a probable cause hearing must be held in front of circuit court judge. This is due to her being a teacher.

If enough probable cause is found, a warrant will be issued for her arrest.

A probable cause hearing will be set at the first available date.
