A former middle school teacher from North Carolina who was arrested earlier this year for the alleged statutory rape of a foster child is now facing new charges after she allegedly reached out to the child again.
Christina Davis Jolly, 43, of Statesville, was arrested on Thursday for the violation of pretrial release conditions in connection with her initial arrest, the Statesville Record & Landmark reports.
Back in August, Jolly was accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy who was living with her in foster care, according to the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office. Jolly allegedly abused the teen for more than a year before someone tipped off the authorities.
Jolly taught in middle schools in Troutman, North Carolina — a small town north of Charlotte — since 2002, but the alleged victim was not a student, district spokeswoman Boen Nutting told Oxygen.com earlier this year.
At the time, Jolly was jailed on a $200,000 bond. She later made that bond and was released, but had been ordered by a judge not to contact the teen. She was allegedly unable to resist, as authorities say she contacted the teen on social media.
The violation led to a search of her home and the seizure of her computers, according to the Statesville Record & Landmark.
Jolly has been jailed on a new $200,000 secured bond.
She still faces five counts of statutory rape of a child in connection with the original arrest.
Jolly had been suspended from her role as a teacher without pay after the initial charges. It’s unclear if she is still technically employed by the school district.
