Former Crooksville Teacher Charged in Case Involving Student
A Perry county teacher, who resigned amid allegations that she had an inappropriate relationship with a student, is now charged with the crime.
Former Crooksville High School teacher Danielle Lusk is charged with one count of contributing to the unruliness of a child.
The complaint says the inappropriate behavior took place from late April until the beginning of May.
The investigation started after an incident earlier this month that was captured on surveillance video. Perry County Sheriff's Deputies responded to the parking lot of a carryout after Lusk allegedly told them a woman hit her, and knocked her glasses off. Lusk said it was because the woman thought she was "sleeping with her 16-year-old daughter."
Lusk's personnel file reveals she was placed on paid administrative leave after admitting she had kissed a female student in and outside of school. Lusk resigned from her teaching position two weeks ago.
Perry County Court issued Lusk a summons. She is scheduled for arraignment next week.
