AL ex-teacher convicted of sodomy, rape

DOTHAN, AL (AP) - A jury has convicted a 29-year-old former Eufaula teacher of rape and sodomy involving 1 of her students.

Dothan police arrested Carrie Perkins last May.

Assistant Houston County District Attorney Banks Smith says Perkins was the boy's seventh-grade science teacher at Parkview Christian School, and that hewas in the ninth grade at the time of the offenses.

Smith says Circuit Court Judge Butch Binford will sentence Perkins on Feb. 23.

Montgomery attorney Susan James, who represented Perkins, could not be reached for comment.
