North Alabama teacher arrested on sex charges
DECATUR, Ala. (AP) – A high school teacher from north Alabama is charged with having sexual relations with two students.
Decatur police say 42-year-old Carrie Cabri Witt faces two counts of being a school employee engaging in sex with a student less than 19. A school website says the woman teaches history and social studies at Decatur High.
Decatur police say they received information on Thursday that Witt had been involved with a student. Officers say they found a second victim during their investigation.
Police say Witt was arrested Monday at her home. Court records aren’t available to show whether Witt has a lawyer who could speak on her behalf.
Police say the school system’s standard procedure is to place teachers on paid leave following an arrest.
