CLIFTON, Tenn. (WSMV) - A former employee of Frank Hughes School has been arrested and charged after rumors of an inappropriate relationship between her and a student surfaced earlier this in May.

According to Clifton Police, they were tipped off on May 8 about an employee at Frank Hughes School possibly having an inappropriate relationship with a student. A full investigation was launched immediately.

Police found that 33-year-old Heather Crowe knowingly had sexual contact with a 14-year-old student and believe that an incident between the two occurred off-campus. Crowe was fired by the school, where she served as a teacher’s aide and baseball coach for the middle school.
