Woman on probation for sex charges allowed vacation

Multiple factors impact probationary restrictions, including an accused person's history, financial situation and alleged crimes. While many people awaiting trial on crimes in North Carolina are not allowed to travel out of state, one woman accused of statutory sex offenses has been given permission to travel to Florida over the summer. The decision comes after a plea deal for sex charges involving a former student.

The woman was charged on multiple counts in Aug. 2017. This included two counts of statutory rape and four counts each of statutory sex offense and indecent liberties with a minor. The charges came after a 22-year-old man accused his former teacher of engaging in a relationship with him when he was 14 and 15 years old.

According to state criminal records, charges against the woman were dismissed on May 29, 2018. This happened after the accused teacher agreed to plead guilty to a felony crime against nature. She was sentenced to 24 months of probation. Davidson County court officials gave her permission to attend a family vacation in Florida during her probationary period.

There are still some restrictions on the woman's trip, namely providing her probation officer with proof of reservations. Along with the legal consequence of probation, the woman also was suspended without pay from her middle school teaching job. She resigned in Dec. 2017. Those who are facing sex charges in North Carolina should be aware of their options, including an understanding of plea deals and probationary measures. Working with a lawyer in the state can help people weigh their options when facing such charges.
