KINKY TEACHER SHAGGED TEEN PUPIL (...oh, and she’s married to the local sheriff’s son!)
FATHER-INLAW: Top cop Stacy Bates ARRESTED: Bates and with hubby Drew A HIGH school teacher, who is also the daughter-in-law of a top cop, has been arrested for allegedly having sex with one of her students.
Lyndsey Sherrod Bates, 22, was a special education teacher at Madison High School in Madison County, Alabama, but has now resigned from her post.
She was arrested and booked into Madison County jail, charged with engaging in a sex act with a student younger than 19.
Although the lad is above the age of consent, it is illegal in Alabama for teachers to shag pupils of any age under 19.
Bates is also charged with several lesser crimes – including three counts of distributing obscene material to a student and one count of having sexual contact with a student.
She is married to Drew Bates, the son of Madison County sheriff’s office chief deputy Stacy Bates, whose office is investigating her case.
“Chief Bates was never involved in that investigation,” Madison County Sheriff Kevin Turner said in a statement.
The sheriff’s office clarified that Lyndsey’s relationship to Stacy Bates “in no way has affected the investigative process or urgency leading to her arrest, nor to future criminal justice proceedings”.
“Because the victim(s) in these charges are juveniles, no specific details of the investigation are being released at this time,” office spokesman Donny Shaw said.
Bates, who began working at Madison County High at the beginning of this school year, has resigned in light of the allegations.
She was a special education teacher and coached junior varsity and varsity volleyball.
Madison County Superintendent Matt Massey said: “We are fully cooperating with law enforcement. Our system fully condemns such actions and we are also offering counselling for our students.”
The arrested woman married Drew Bates in March 2018 in Athens, Alabama.
Drew followed his father and also works in law enforcement.
