A now-former Tennessee teacher at Pearl Cohn High School teacher has been charged after allegedly performing sex acts on five separate teens.
24-year-old Marquita Alston is alleged to have performed sex acts on the five victims, all 17 years old, between September and November of 2014.
Authorities started their investigation into Ms. Alston on November 24, 2014 after the principal called the police with â€œdisturbing informationâ€ sheâ€™d received.”
Detectives say they were told the teacher had had sexual contact with multiple students, some of which happened on campus.
She was placed on administrative leave by the school November 25, 2014, and resigned on December 1, 2014.
Sheâ€™s been charged with five counts of statutory rape.
