Former Teacher Indicted
Tuesday, 19 August 2014

August 20--  A former Montgomery County High School teacher has been indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury.

Christine Spivey is accused of sexual assault of a 17-year-old student at the high school during the last three months of last school term.  The Dothan, Alabama native resigned when charges were filed last Spring.

Meanwhile, the arrest record of another former Montgomery County High School teacher has been restricted from public access.  Carrie O'Connor was acquitted several years ago after being accused of having sex with a student.  

She petitioned the court last October and Judge C. Michael Johnson ruled in February that the harm to O'Connor's privacy clearly outweighs the public interest in the criminal history record information being publically available.

In other Montgomery County court news, the former director of the county Emergency Management Agency has been re-indicted by the county grand jury.

According to Clerk of Court Keith Hamilton, Jimmy Braddy of Higgston was first indicted in February for child molestation.  Since then, investiation revealed another charge.  The indictment returned last week accuses Braddy of three counts of child molestation and two counts of sexual battery of a child.

The grand jury also indicted Robert Moody of Glennville and Vidalia for child molestation and Justin Banks of Uvalda for failing to register as a sex offender.

It also indicted former Vidalia Police officer Tony Phillips for false imprisonment of his wife in February.   The incident led to a standoff with police at Phillip's residence on Sawmill Road for which he was also indicted for aggravated assault against Montgomery County Sheriff Ladson O'Connor and for obstructing a law officer.
