Alabama teacher who 'slept with students' charges dropped

An Alabama high school teacher accused of having sex with two students has had her charges thrown out after a judge ruled it as unconstitutional.

Carrie Witt, 44, was charged in March last year with having sex with the students aged between 16 and 19 years old while teaching at Decatur High School.

The judge dismissed both charges without prejudice on constitutional grounds on Thursday, WHNT reports.

Morgan County Circuit Judge Glenn Thompson said the court found the statute 'unconstitutional' and that there was no proof Witt used her position of authority to force the two students to have sex.
