2nd victim confirmed in teacher sex case

Posted

A 31-year-old middle school teacher charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old student is now facing an additional charge for an alleged second victim.

According to reports, Elizabeth Marie Moss was charged with second-degree assault and battery after investigators with Sumter County Sheriff's Office confirmed a second victim on Thursday. Moss reportedly assaulted a 14-year-old male victim by attempting to arouse him using a pencil between Oct. 1-31 of last year, according to officers.

Moss appeared before the magistrate's court Friday and received a surety bond of $150,000 from Judge George Gibson at Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center. Moss was charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after an investigation by the sheriff's office revealed that she allegedly performed a sexual act on a then-13-year-old student in her residence.

Moss' lawyer, Rose Mary Parham, represented her during the hearing.
