ADAMS COUNTY, Wash.--Prosecutors in Adams County charged a former Othello school teacher on Tuesday with one count of First Degree Child Molestation.
Lisa Davis is accused of molesting a 10-year-old student. Police said the alleged victim was in Davis’ reading class.
Davis taught at Scootney Springs Elementary School in Othello. School District leaders said Davis resigned following the accusations.
School District leaders received information indicating possible inappropriate conduct between 5th grade teacher and a student on May 30th. The District said they then notified Othello police who began an investigation. Davis was placed on administrative leave on the same day pending investigation according to the Othello School District.
Officers said that another teacher alerted school administrators Davis was acting inappropriately with her student.
OPD leaders said they are confident that she committed a crime against the 10-year-old. Davis also took the boy to a movie according to investigators.
