Trial set for former Selma teacher on sex charges

Tools

SELMA, Ala. (AP) — A judge has set a July 29 trial date for a former Selma High School teacher accused of having sexual contact with a student.

Circuit Judge Jack Meigs set the trial date Tuesday after LaTanglia Williams waived an appearance at her arraignment. District Attorney Michael Jackson said Williams faces charges of possession of obscene matter, electronic solicitation of a child, being a school employee who had sexual contact with a student, and enticing a child under 16 for immoral purposes.

Williams is on paid leave from her teaching position. Her attorney did not immediately return a phone message and email seeking comment.

State Superintendent of Education Tommy Bice recently notified Selma school officials that his department is looking into allegations of sexual activity involving system employees and students.
