FORTVILLE, Ind. -- The Mt. Vernon School Board voted to terminate the employment of a teacher's aide accused of having sexual relationships with six students.

Kisha Nuckols, a teacher's aide/subsititute teacher at the middle school, has been preliminarily charged with three counts of child seduction and one count of dissemination of matter harmful to minors – all felonies.

District administrators announced Friday, April 1 that they had received a "credible allegation" about inappropriate contact between a female "middle school non-certified employee" and a high school student.

The student, who was 17 while some of the alleged incidents occurred but has since turned 18, subsequently told investigators Nuckols had contact him through Twitter and requested to follow him. They reportedly then flirted back and forth over social media, eventually escalating to Nuckols sending nude photographs, and, eventually, to the two having sex.
