Muscogee County teacher Cristina Preston officially resigned from her position as a special education teacher at Veterans Memorial Middle School.
Columbus Police say that Preston has been granted a $70,000 bond. If she does not bond out of Muscogee County Jail then Preston will go before a judge in recorders court Friday morning at 8:00 AM.
Preston was arrested Tuesday on child molestation charges. She was charged with two counts of child molestation, enticing a child and sexual assault against a person in her custody.
A police report shows that the alleged sexual assault against the 14-year-old boy happened at Cooper Creek Park Monday, just after midnight.
The alleged victim also attends Veterans Middle School.
Muscogee County School Superintendent Susan Andrews held a press conference Wednesday, "When we have an allegation like this, it is a shock to parents. It's a shock to students and administrators. It's a reminder to all of us our obligation to our students and our community. "
Andrews says that Veterans Memorial Middle School Principal Melanie Knight held a faculty meeting Wednesday morning to lett teachers know about the situation. Administrators have been meeting with students in groups throughout the day.
