Central Teacher Charged with Sexual Battery

Brandy Foreman

Court documents reveal that a Central School District teacher has been charged with sexual battery.

According to a press release from Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane, on Dec. 2, the sheriff’s office was asked to open an investigation into allegations that a teacher from Central Public Schools had inappropriate relationships with at least two students.

Sheriff’s Investigator Cindy Smith met with the school administration and identified the teacher as 29-year-old Brandy Foreman, a junior high English teacher and cheer coach, according to the Central School District’s website.

The investigation determined that the teacher had sexual contact on multiple occasions with at least two students. She also exchanged explicit photos in texts or on Snapchat.

During interviews with Foreman and the two students, they all confirmed that the allegations were true.

Smith arrested Foreman and booked her into jail on four felony counts of sexual battery. Her bond was set at $20,000. She will be formally arraigned in District Court at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11.

She faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.

The Central School District released the following statement:

“One of the Central School District’s top priorities is to provide a safe learning environment for its students. Because of this, when the district was made aware of allegations of inappropriate conduct of a teacher, involving one or more students, it immediately contacted law enforcement and placed the teacher on administrative leave. The district cooperated with law enforcement during its investigation of this matter. The district is now reviewing the results of the investigation and will take appropriate steps based on the results of the investigation. Because of confidentiality rights of the student(s) and individual involved, the district cannot comment further.”
