If you witness a crime, here’s what to do
A second person this week has been arrested for alleged crimes while working as a Muscogee County School District substitute teacher.
Victoria Jane Cothran, 52, was arrested Thursday and charged with simple battery and criminal trespass, according to a news release from the Columbus Police Department.
MCSD announced in a news release Friday afternoon that Cothran resigned Thursday.
A police officer confirmed to the Ledger-Enquirer that Cothran’s charges stem from a confrontation with a student at Midland Middle School. Cothran also is a former deputy in the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office and worked as a security officer for the district.
Alexander Letwond White, 35, was arrested Tuesday and charged with sexual assault of a person in custody, child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes while working as a substitute teacher at Hardaway High School. MCSD fired him Tuesday.
