Charges – Arrested
Last month, she was charged with two counts of sexual conduct with a student under the age of 17. She turned herself in Wednesday and was later released on a $ 50,000 bond.
If she is convicted, McCluskey faces up to 20 years in prison. She has yet to enter a guilty plea and the arrest documents do not name an attorney authorized to speak on her behalf.
Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton previously told WAAY that the case was referred to the Alabama State Bureau of Investigation due to a conflict of interest. The student involved is allegedly a family member of a sheriff’s office employee. “The student is a family member of one of our employees, so for that reason, the case was referred to SBI for further investigation,” Singleton said.
According to CBS affiliate WHNT, the charges indicate the student was under 17 when McCluskey allegedly initiated sex. Other details of the case were not immediately available. The school system has said it will not comment further on the case pending its outcome.
