High school teacher accused of having sex with students
CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, Ark. (KATV) —
A former Marked Tree teacher is accused of bringing students to her home to have sex, authorities say.
According to our sister station KAIT, 25-year-old Jessie Lorene Goline went Wednesday before a Craighead County judge, who found probable cause to charge her with first-degree sexual assault.
The former high school teacher is accused of having sexual intercourse with four students, Arkansas State Police say.
KAIT reports an investigation into Goline began in April when a parent reported her after threatening to come to the school and "do bodily harm" to the teacher.
According to court documents, Goline came into the principal's office crying and when asked if she had done anything inappropriate with the students, she allegedly answered in the affirmative.
The school principal notified the superintendent and the Marked Tree Police Department.
A district attorney asked State Police to conduct an investigation after learning the alleged acts took place in Craighead County rather than Poinsett County.
