Teacher Charged with Criminal Sexual Conduct

Sumter, SC (WLTX) - Sumter police have charged a middle school teacher with sexually assaulting one of her students.

Officers arrested 31-year-old Elizabeth Moss Wednesday, charging her with criminal sexual conduct with a minor second degree.

According to police, the woman sexually assaulted the student at her home between March and April of 2013. Investigators also say she sent inappropriate messages to some of her students on Facebook.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and there may be more victims.

Moss teaches at Chestnut Oaks Middle School as a chorus director. Sumter School District Spokesperson Shelly Galloway says Moss has been placed on administrative leave.

"Sumter School District does not tolerate this type of behavior," Galloway said in a statement. "All employees are expected to exercise good judgment and maintain professional boundaries when interacting with students at all times, both on and off school property. This includes any action or conduct communicated or carried out in person, in writing and/or electronically through such means as telephone, email, text messages, instant messaging or social networking sites."
