Teacher Will Challenge Law Banning Sex With Students

In Florence, a former substitute teacher — a woman — is charged with having sex with a student. Twenty-four-year-old Kayla Safford was arrested Wednesday. Police say she had a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student at Florence High School. Safford and her attorney deny she did anything wrong. 18 year olds can legally have sex — the issue is — she’s a teacher. But, Safford’s attorney will challenge Alabama’s teacher-student sex law. It was ruled unconstitutional by one county judge but the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals reversed that decision.
