SENATOBIA, Miss.–Text messages about a relationship that goes all the way back to 2008 are just some of the evidence that police say they have against former Tate County school teacher Whitney Fair Mullen, 34, of Senatobia. She’s accused of having a sexual relationship with a student that started when he was 12.
The victim is now 18. WMC-TV in Memphis reported that he just came forward to police about what happened.
Police said the molestation started when the victim went to Mullen’s house to do some work. That was when she was a teacher at Strayhorn Elementary.
None of the activity happened at school, according to prosecutors.
Mullen’s bond was originally set at $5 million, but was reduced to $250,000.
