CLANTON, Ala. (AP) - A teacher and former county school board member in Alabama 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. WBRC-TV reports she previously served on the Chilton County Board of Education. 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.
