MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Mary G. Montgomery teacher Alicia Gray has been indicted by a Mobile County grand jury, after waiving her preliminary hearing last week.
Officials said Gray has been formally charged with sex abuse and sodomy. They said Gray did not appear for a preliminary hearing, instead waiving the case over to a grand jury which handed up charges.
"We do have to wait on a lot of indictments, but this case was ready as far as the interviews and paperwork," said Mobile County Assistant District Attorney Nicki Patterson.
Gray is also charged with being a school employee and having sexual contact with a student under 19 which is a felony. Gray will remain free on bond.
"She will not have to turn herself in. She is on what is called a consolidated bond. She waived to grand jury, the grand jury found that there was enough probable cause to indict her. She will just get a letter from the court telling her what judge she's been awarded," Patterson said.
Gray surrendered on February 25 with her attorney and husband by her side. FOX10 News obtained the search warrant affidavit issued for Gray's property before the document was sealed. In the document, it said Gray and the 14-year-old student met in several places including Mary G. Montgomery High School and engaged in sexual activity.
Gray is still on paid administrative leave with the Mobile County Public School System. An arraignment date should be set in the next couple of weeks.
