The gossip mill at Cox Mill High School in North Carolina will undoubtedly be churning this week, as teacher Katherine Ross Ridenhour was arrested by police for allegedly having a consensual relationship with a 17-year-old student. The Concord Police Department was notified about the relationship on Monday, and went ahead with the arrest today.
She was charged with two counts of indecent liberties with a student according to their media release:
Ridenhour, 23 and married, graduated from Liberty University with a degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. She was a “Foods” and JV cheerleading coach before resigning from the school on Tuesday.
This is yet another reminder to shady teachers out there that someone will out you.
