    Franklin County Times: Charges against teacher dismissed (July 10 2013)

    The case of a former Vina teacher accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with one of her students was dismissed this past week, courthouse officials said ... “This was a unique situation in that the victim in the case, his parents, the school and the investigating agency all agreed the case should be dismissed,” Rushing said. “There would also have been issues with prosecuting the case because the alleged victim is now an adult and has actually married the defendant. “He indicated he did not want to cooperate with the prosecution and would assert his marital privileges if the case proceeded.” Rushing said the victim’s parents also expressed they did not want to continue with the case against their now daughter-in-law.

    Not removing from public view -- appears they undermined the prosecution by marrying, adverse testimony by a spouse is usually inadmissible.
