    ABC 24: Trial Delayed for Teacher Charged with 25 Counts of Rape (Mar 1 2012)

    Seven teens who claim they were raped by a Tipton County teacher will have to wait longer for their day in court.

    Cindy Clifton's trial was scheduled to begin at the end of April, but in a March 1st court appearance the judge delayed it.

    Clifton was indicted in November 2011 on 25 counts of statutory rape from seven different teenage boys. Eleven teens say the teacher gave them alcohol.

    Clifton's husband, mother and brother all joined her in the courtroom for her status hearing. Her lawyer, Blake Ballin, says, "She's been on pins and needles over the past couple months, as it would with anybody, it effects [sic] your mental health being in limbo. But she has the support of her family and friends and she's relying on them."

    It "effects" your mental health? :rolleyes: I'd say that when a 41-year-old woman is having sex with seven teenage boys, something has already "effected" her mental health.

The fifth grade teacher made a deal, admitting to guilt to eight misdemeanor alcohol charges and seven felony rape charges. Her lawyer, Blake Ballin, says the teacher did what she needed to. "She was facing what could have been a life sentence, 50 years or more."

    The 42-year-old wasn't held responsible for 17 counts of rape. District Attorney, Mike Dunavant says, "We believe it resolves it, we got to the truth of the matter and for Clifton to plea guilty and accept her responsibility to go to the penitentiary for three years, we think it's appropriate."
