Dec 13, 2021Alabama ATC Charged with Having Sex with Student
A former athletic trainer at Flomaton High School in Alabama stands accused of having sex with a student, according to the local county sheriff’s office.
Sheriff Heath Jackson said that on Nov. 15 investigators with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office (ECSO) began an investigation involving Kelsie Johnson, 26, after receiving a formal complaint of an inappropriate relationship with a student.
At the time of the complaint, the ECSO says, Johnson was acting as an athletic trainer who was on loan from another school system. Johnson was assisting the Alabama high school with their student-athletes.
During the investigation, Johnson was removed from her position at Flomaton High School after the formal complaint was made, according to authorities.
At the completion of the investigation, it was determined that Johnson had participated in a sexual encounter with a student under the age of 19 and her position as a trainer assigned to the school violated Alabama State Law, the ECSO says.
The office says that on Dec. 9, Johnson was taken into custody and charged with one count of a school employee engaging in a sex act with a student. Johnson was booked into the Escambia County Detention Center with no bond.
