Pinson teacher arrested on charges of inappropriate sexual contact with student


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Jennifer Marie Perry, a teacher at Pinson Valley High School has been charged with the offense of school employee having sexual contact with a student.

Back in late February, Jefferson Sheriff’s detectives began an investigation into reports of inappropriate sexual contact between Perry and a 17-year-old male student at Pinson Valley High School. The school administration notified the Sheriff’s Office that Perry had come forward reporting that she had been told by students of a rumor being passed at the school that she had engaged in a sex act with a male student. She denied any involvement and resigned her position at the school and left campus on February 24th.

Detectives continued their investigation and on March 13th obtained an arrest warrant for the 27-year-old Perry. Three days later on March 16th, she surrendered at the Jefferson County Jail. She was then released after posting a $30,000 bond.
