Wilson County sheriff’s deputies charged a former Watertown High School teacher Thursday with sexual misconduct involving a student.

Carrie Cunningham, 23, of Smyrna, was charged after results of an investigation into sexual misconduct prompted a Wilson County grand jury to return a 10-count indictment for soliciting the sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of sexual contact with a minor.

Sheriff Robert Bryan said investigators received a report in late November from the parents of a Watertown High School student claiming possible inappropriate contact between their child and a teacher employed at the school.

Bryan said an initial investigation revealed Cunningham sent inappropriate sexual material electronically to the student.

Bryan said Cunningham was immediately relieved of any employment in Wilson County schools and denied any contact with the Watertown High School student.

Bryan said an investigation into interactions between Cunningham and the student was ongoing.

How old was the student? What is she alleged to have done? This is a soundbite, not a story.

What does the age of the student matter? She is a teacher that is supposed to teach our children....not violate them! If it was your child, this wouldn't be a sound bite at all. She thought remedial English at that school.
