- Gainesville, Georgia — A 37-year-old woman who married her son’s 15-year-old friend, and who gave birth to a boy earlier this month, pleaded not guilty to charges of statutory rape, child molestation and enticing a minor. (The minimum age for marriage in Georgia is 16, unless the bride is pregnant.) The marriage occurred a few days before the woman’s arrest; the young husband’s grandmother claims he is seeking a divorce.
- Laurens, South Carolina — An elementary-school teacher was arrested on two counts of criminal sexual misconduct with a minor after a parent accused her of having sex with an 11-year-old boy at the school.
