A Tennessee elementary school teacher who was arrested for raping a 12-year-old boy was rearrested on Thursday after she contacted her alleged victim and threatened him for turning her in.
Police arrested 38-year-old Alissa McCommon for coercion of a witness, aggravated stalking, and harassment just three weeks after she was arrested on Sept. 8 for statutory rape.
Covington Police issued a statement saying, "The evidence indicates McCommon texted a victim, using a specific code word known to the juvenile as a term McCommon would previously utilize to confirm that the juvenile was alone, often before sending nude photographs on Snapchat."
Covington Police Chief Donna Turner said, "Due to the nature of the communications, we are concerned others may have been contacted. We continue to work closely with the District Attorneys’ Office as to the revocation of McCommon’s bond, as well as the additional charges that continue to develop."
McCommon has admitted to "communicating inappropriately with former students" through online video games and social media apps, where she apparently sent them "inappropriate photographs" and requested "sexual relationships with the victims."
By all accounts, McCommon not only committed heinous crimes, but she also threatened her victim. While her case has a lot of litigation to go through, it appears that McCommon will be spending a lot of time in prison.
