In South Carolina, police arrested middle school choir teacher Elizabeth Marie Moss for allegedly sexually assaulting at least one 13-year-old student. The incident allegedly included oral sex by Moss on the boy.
Moss, 31, has been charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
She is the chorus director at Chestnut Oaks Middle School in Sumter, S.C. After she was arrested, school district officials placed the teacher on administrative leave.
The sexual dalliance took place in the spring of last year at Moss’s home.
More recently, in October, Moss also allegedly used a pencil, somehow, in an apparently unsuccessful attempt to arouse a 14-year-old student. More charges may be added concerning this incident.
Investigators say they have also found what they describe as inappropriate messages Moss sent to some students via Facebook.
Moss is married to another school district employee. She has three children, ages three, five and 12.
The choir teacher is currently out of jail on $150,000 bail.
