CARROLLTON, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama private school that employed two teachers who pleaded guilty to sexual relationships with students is being sued by one of the ex-students.
The Tuscaloosa News reports a lawsuit filed Friday against Pickens Academy says the school was aware of the relationship between the then-teenage plaintiff and teacher Charli Parker, and did nothing to stop it.
Plaintiff's attorney Clint Mountain says their investigation uncovered multiple "inappropriate relationships between faculty and students over the past decade."
Parker, now 32, pleaded guilty in 2017 to having sexual contact with students younger than 19, and was sentenced to three years in prison. Her husband, 34-year-old James Franklin Parker III, who also taught at Pickens, also pleaded guilty to sex charges. He awaits sentencing.
The newspaper couldn't reach school representatives for comment.
