Married teachers at a private school in Alabama face up to 20 years in prison each after being arrested in the same week on charges of having sex with different students at Pickens Academy in Carrollton.
The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that James “Jamie” Franklin Parker, 32, was arrested Wednesday and charged with as a school employee having sex with a student under the age of 19. The alleged victim is a former female student.
Parker’s wife, Charli Jones Parker, 30, was arrested on the same charges Monday, according to the sheriff’s office, in a case involving a male student.
The male Parker perv teaches math and also coaches football and boys’ basketball, according to the private school’s website. His wife teaches physical education, computers and elementary school, as well as coaching the girls’ basketball team.
“The incidents involving the husband and wife are separate and unrelated in place and manner of commission,” said Pickens County District Attorney Chris McCool.
McCool said none of the criminal sexual activity occurred at the school.
Court records state that Charli Parker had sex with a student at least 11 times between October 2014 and March 2016. The sex acts included sexual intercourse and deviant sexual intercourse — including oral sex, according to a deposition in the case. The interactions took place at Graham Cemetery in Reform, Ala.; at another location identified only as “red wood building” in Reform; and at the Parkers’ home in Pickensville, Ala.
The sicko teacher met her victim at least four times at the cemetery, three times at her home and four times at the red wood building.
“We are obviously shocked and dismayed by this allegation and will be working to support all of our students and families in coping with this news,” said Pickens Academy Headmaster Brach White in a statement. “The safety and well-being of our students is and always will be our top priority.”
Both teachers were immediately suspended, White added.
A school employee who performs a sex act with a student less than 19 years old in Alabama faces a Class B felony charge that carries a potential sentence of two to 20 years in prison.
