WALKERTOWN, N.C. (AP) — A former North Carolina middle school teacher previously charged with sexually abusing a male student was charged Monday with additional sex crime counts involving other male students, authorities said.
Carly Erin Kaczmarek, 32, was charged with one count of statutory rape, two counts of sexual activity with a student and two counts of taking indecent liberties with a student in connection with an off-campus encounter in November 2019, according to warrants obtained by the Winston-Salem Journal.
The Walkertown Middle School employee was fired from her Language Arts teaching job after the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office charged her March 6 with engaging in a sex act with a male student and taking indecent liberties with him, also during an off-campus encounter in November 2019, the sheriff’s office said.
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School officials told news outlets the district was recently notified of the criminal investigation, but Kaczmarek had already been suspended pending a separate, unrelated investigation.
The school declined to comment on that investigation.
Kaczmarek was being held in Forsyth County jail Monday on a $50,000 bond. Her next court appearance was set for May 21.
It’s unclear whether she has an attorney who can comment on her behalf.
