Missouri Teacher Charged with Rape of Student after Fleeing State




A 26-year-old high school math teacher from Laquey, Missouri, was arrested in Texas after fleeing the state following accusations of engaging in a sexual relationship with a teenage student. The teacher, Hailey Nichelle Clifton-Carmack, is facing multiple charges, including statutory rape, endangering the welfare of a child, sexual contact with a student, and child molestation. Authorities apprehended her near San Antonio, Texas, while she was visiting family. Clifton-Carmack is currently awaiting extradition back to Missouri.


According to court documents and witness testimonies, a student reported the inappropriate relationship to a school resource officer. The student provided photographs as evidence of scratches resulting from the alleged sexual encounter, and an incriminating phone call between Clifton-Carmack and the victim was also recorded. After obtaining additional evidence, authorities issued an arrest warrant with a bond set at $250,000.


In a saddening turn of events, the victim's father has also been charged with first-degree child endangerment for allegedly having knowledge of the sexual relationship but failing to intervene. Although a warrant has been issued for his arrest, it is still uncertain whether he has been taken into custody.


This case highlights the importance of protecting vulnerable individuals in our educational system and ensuring that appropriate actions are taken against those who exploit their positions of authority. The authorities have displayed swift and diligent actions in pursuing justice for the victim and holding those responsible accountable for their actions.
