A North Carolina teacher’s sex scandal involved a rape while on house arrest

A North Carolina teacher who was under house arrest on charges of sexually abusing a student is now facing more charges after the same student visited her home nine times, police say.

On July 20, police launched an investigation after receiving a tip that a science teacher at Northview Academy in Statesville had an inappropriate relationship with a student.

On August 1, Elizabeth Suzanne Bailey was arrested by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office for an alleged relationship with a college student. WBTV reported that the 36-year-old teacher was charged with statutory rape of a person aged 15 or younger, indecent imprisonment with a minor and sexual activity with a student.

The Iredell-Statesville School District allegedly suspended Bailey with pay after learning of the allegations.

Bailey, of Statesville, was released on $75,000 bail, placed under house arrest and fitted with an electronic surveillance device.

The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office found in a expression“Part of her original terms of the bond release was that she stay away from the teenage victim in this case.”

On September 2, Bailey was arrested by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office warrant squad and taken to the Iredell County Detention Center.

Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell said the teen has visited Bailey’s home nine times since her original arrest while she was on bail and under house arrest.

Bailey now faces 27 more charges in the latest allegations in her teacher sex abuse scandal. The teacher was charged with nine counts of crimes that contributed to a minor’s delinquency, nine counts of crimes that intimidated or disturbing a state witness, and nine counts of crimes that violated the terms of the pre-trial release.

Bailey is now being held on an $800,000 bond.

Campbell said the investigation by investigators from the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office’s Special Victims Unit is ongoing and that Bailey could face additional charges in the future for alleged child sex abuse.

People Magazine reported, “Bailey began working for the Iredell-Statesville School District in 2010 when she was hired as an assistant.”
