COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) - A middle school teacher's aide in Newton
County has been accused of an off-campus sexual relationship with a
Sheriff's Lt. Bill Watterson says Brandi McMichael was released
from the county jail Thursday on $7,000 bond.
Watterson says the 28-year-old paraprofessional at Cousins Middle School was arrested Tuesday.
She is charged with child molestation, sending illicit materials through a cell phone to a minor, enticing a child for indecent purposes and interfering with custody.
Schools system spokesperson Sherri Viniard said administrators
contacted authorities after learning of the relationship.
Viniard said, "the board will take appropriate action, possibly as early
as the board meeting scheduled for next Tuesday."
