October 3, 2018

CLANTON, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama teacher has been charged with multiple sex crimes involving children.

Authorities say 31-year-old Ashley Nicole Maddox was arrested following an investigation by Clanton police involving three alleged victims.

She’s charged with being a school employee and having sexual contact with a student under 19; contributing to the delinquency of a minor; and distributing obscene material to a student.

The website of Chilton County High School lists Maddox as a math teacher there. The school website says she also taught at Clanton elementary and middle schools and was once a special education teacher in Shelby County.

Court records aren’t available online to show whether Maddox has a lawyer.
