TROUP COUNTY, GA (WTVM) -  The trial for Elizabeth Gaddy is less than two weeks away.

The former Troup County teacher is accused of molesting one of her students.

And now, a judge says he'll consider some new allegations.

Gaddy, who taught at Callaway Middle School, is accused of molestation for allegedly performing oral sex on one of her former 7th grade students last year.

Today, a Troup County Superior Court judge ruled prosecutors can also include evidence that the 45-year-old reportedly had sex with a high school student and performed other sex acts with the victim's two older brothers.

The judge is also allowing text messages and phone calls between Gaddy and the then 13-year-old victim to be introduced during her trial.

If convicted of aggravated child molestation, one of the three charges Gaddy's been arraigned on, she could face 25 years in prison.

She pleaded not guilty to her charges at her arraignment Friday.  

Her trial is set for October 19th.
