Alissa McCommon Wiki – Alissa McCommon Biography
Alissa McCommon, a fourth-grade teacher in Tennessee could face 25 years behind bars after being arrested for allegedly raping a 12-year-old boy and befriending other former students online. Alissa McCommon, 38, was arrested outside her home Friday by the Covington Police Department and booked into the Tipton County Jail. The mother of two has been accused of sexually assaulting a former student in 2021 at her home, Covington Police Chief Donna Turner said. The Charger Academy teacher admitted to communicating inappropriately with students, police said. McCommon was suspended without pay on Aug. 24 after a parent came forward with the allegation, according to WREG.
Alissa McCommon is 38 years old.
After the father came forward, several other students claimed McCommon befriended them online and even played video games with them, the outlet reported. The fourth-grade teacher allegedly sent students inappropriate photos and asked them to have sexual relations with them, the outlet reported. “It is unbearable. It is indescribable and 100 percent preventable. I think that’s why detectives and we are so passionate about making sure victims are okay,” Chief Turner said, according to WREG. The teacher, who is being held on $25,000 bail, maintains her innocence. We believe she is on the verge of a social media witch hunt and that is frustrating for us,” said Jere Mason, her defense attorney, according to WREG. The investigation continues as police continue to interview the alleged victims. Parents believe the teacher should have been arrested after she was suspended from school. “Now you all want to take care of the matter. You should have done it at the beginning of time when you first found out,” Bianca Taylor, who has a student in McCommon’s class, said in a Facebook group, according to Fox 13 Memphis. McCommon is expected to appear in court on October 13.
