A Sampson County Public Schools substitute teacher is facing multiple sex crime charges involving a student.
Tiffany Rose Williams, age 32, was arrested on Dec. 15 and was charged with two counts of sexual acts with a student, indecent liberties with a student, and indecent liberties with a child.
She was given a secured bond in the amount of $40,000 which was posted and Williams was released a little over an hour after her arrest.
The arrest came after an investigation into a complaint of an inappropriate relationship between a substitute teacher and a student that was received on Nov. 23, according to a press release from the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office. The complaint was made to the sheriff’s office by a Lakewood High School Resource Officer.
“At this time, no further information will be released due to the sensitivity associated with juvenile investigations,” the Sampson Sheriff’s Office press release reads “It is important to note that no activity occurred on the school’s campus and school officials have been fully cooperative with the investigation.”
According to Sampson County Public Schools, Williams had been a substitute at Lakewood High between Nov. 16-21 and during a half-day of classes on Nov. 23. The district said she was taken off the substitute’s list on the day the complaint was made.
Williams had been a lateral-entry teacher for one year at Lakewood High and started work in August 2021. She resigned in June 2022.
There is an expired NC teaching license on file with the state for Williams in the area of Exceptional Children: General Curriculum (K-12). The license was issued on August 12, 2021, and expired on June 30, 2022.
