Former Teacher's Aide Facing Charges

A former Tennessee teacher's aide charged with taking two boys to Bell County for sex faces new charges tonight.

25 year old Christy Michelle McCartt now faces two new counts of statutory rape, and one count of soliciting by electronic means.

Claiborne County, Tennessee investigators say McCartt sent a text message to a teen last spring asking him to have sex. Investigators say the two had sex in June or July. McCartt also faces two other counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and contributing to the unruliness of a minor for allegedly taking two students to Kentucky to have sex in November.

McCartt worked at the alternative school in Tazewell, but had resigned before the November incident.

She's free on bond tonight.
