These teachers are two lucky campers, I have a few thoughts on why but I'll just keep them to myself for now. Two Alabama educators from separate schools are being given a second chance to break all moral codes and possibly the law. Carrie Witt, 44, and 27-year old David Solomon, will not face criminal charges for their sexual relationships with 16-year old students. ⠀
Both former contract teachers are accused of having sex with students who were at least 16 years of age. Although in the state of Alabama, the age to consent to sex is 16, there is a law that prevents teachers from engaging in inappropriate relationships with their students. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, that law was deemed unconstitutional by Morgan County Circuit Judge Glenn Thompson. Witt's attorney argued that the two students she was accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with were over 16 and not under her direct authority thus eliminating the prosecution's claim that Witt used her authority to coerce and manipulate the children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Prosecutors plan to appeal the dismissal of charges.
