MURPHY, North Carolina (WDEF) – The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office has charged a teacher with sexual assaults on a student.
26 year old Kayla Alayne Sprinkles taught and coached softball and cross country at Andrews High School in 2016-17.
And that’s when investigators say she had a relationship with a 16 year old student.
She was indicted this week on five counts of Sexual Activity With a Student.
The Sheriff says she apparently learned about the indictments on social media and fled the area.
She then turned herself in at the Mecklenburg County Detention Center in Charlotte.
Sheriff Derrick Palmer stated “Our youth and our students are one of the greatest resources that Cherokee County is blessed to have. It is incumbent upon all of us to ensure their safety and well being as they grow and mature.”
