A Northside Teacher was arrested and charged after inappropriate contact with a student.

The Muscogee County School District says it was an anonymous tip that led to the investigation of the 26-year-old Northside teacher.

The arrest marks the third criminal investigation involving one of the School District’s employees after two substitute teachers were charged last week.

Kristin Davenport was formally charged late Thursday with three counts of sexual assault by a person who has supervisory or disciplinary authority, in this case a teacher.

The charges reportedly stem from Davenport’s consensual contact with a student at Northside.

Details of the allegations have not been made public.

Davenport’s arrest follows two other criminal investigations involving substitute teachers in the Muscogee County School District.

Hardaway substitute, Alexander White is facing multiple charges including child molestation and enticing a child.

A substitute at Midland Middle School, Victoria Cothran was arrested on a less serious misdemeanor charge of simple battery after an alleged meltdown on a student there.

The Muscogee County School District responded to a previous report by First News about the incidents involving the substitutes intimating that any suggestion District officials said they were unaware of specific allegations or didn’t provide a straight answer or that the Superintendent shied away from hot topics is (to paraphrase) pure rubbish and flat false.
