Teacher Charged With Rape After Allegedly Paying Students To Have Sex With Her

Ex-teacher Kayla Tindall is facing statutory rape charges after she allegedly paid students to have sex with her.

Eupora, MS – A former Mississippi high school teacher has been charged with statutory rape for allegedly having sex with two students at Eupora High School.

Investigators initially said that 32-year-old Kayla Tindall had raped a 14-year-old student in October of 2019, WLBT reported.

Then Webster County Superintendent Brian Jones said they learned about the allegations regarding Tindall and a second, 15-year-old victim.

The mother of the second victim told WCBI that she first found out that her son had been raped by his teacher after a sketchy phone call from the school on Jan. 31.

She said the principal called and told her that she needed to have a conversation with her son when he arrived home from school, but didn’t give her any details as to what had happened.

“[My son] told me what happened. He told me he’s been talking, you know, having sex with this woman. And they’ve been having phone conversations. And she was giving him money,” the mother told WCBI.

She said her son told her that Tindall had given him $500 in exchange for having sex with her.

“He asked her, why does she want to talk with him?” the mother told WCBI. “And she said that she liked the feeling that he gives her, the attention that he gives her.”

“I think he was in love with her, I think he really cared for her… She manipulated him. Yes, she did,” the mother continued. “You know she gave him money to do with, you know, big money… Money that I wouldn’t give him at 15 you know, $500 is a lot of money.”

She said that her son said he was called into the principal’s office and the principal checked through his phone, WCBI reported.

Then the principal took out his own phone and filmed a video of some of the messages that he found on the student’s phone, according to the mother.

She told WCBI that she was furious over the way the whole situation had been handled involving her juvenile son, and said she should have been called as soon as the school was made aware of the allegations.

“I feel like they are trying to cover for her, give her a chance, and that’s not fair because these are minor children… You know, y’all didn’t take a mug shot. Y’all are not taking this seriously, and I don’t understand why…” the frustrated mother complained.

She wasn’t happy with how the police were handling the suspect, either, WCBI reported.

“If this had been a black person, I’m being honest, we would have been in handcuffs,” she continued. “We would have had mugshots, fingerprints. Oh, gosh, we would still be in jail right now.”

The relationship between Tindall and the 15-year-old boy went on for five months, and the school knew about it weeks before they even approached the victim, the mother told WCBI

Tindall surrendered to sheriff’s deputies on Tuesday and was booked on statutory rape charges, according to post on the Webster County Sheriff’s Department’s official Facebook page.

The former high school teacher was later released on a $50,000 bond, according to WLBT.

“If this had been a black person, I’m being honest, we would have been in handcuffs,” she continued. “We would have had mugshots, fingerprints. Oh, gosh, we would still be in jail right now.”

Paranoid reaction.

I'm guessing the school thought the parents were aware of the relationship and they, as well as, the cops treated them as suspects. Hard to tell with not enough information. Such as who called the cops and when. Did the school call the cops the minute they found out? How did the mother know the school was aware 5 weeks prior to disclosing it to her?

Well " you know " this teacher looks like a male, that's why it had to pay so much for sex and sounds like the student was black. Either way this is wrong and why hasn't the Fem movement come out denouncing these teachers after all the sexual assaults by female educators recently. Crickets " me too "

So, the school didn’t tell the parents nor the police when discovering this affair?

Whatever the gender of the teacher, it is still sex abuse, and most likely messed up those kids. What the hell is wrong with those sicko teachers? And from the sound of it, the school handled it completely wrong. They should have called the cops and parents immediately, as most of you know. What a cluster. I don't blame the mom for being upset.

School officials seem to be covering up something. Fire their asses, or at least sue them. Once a crime was suspected, it should have reported to the police "immediately". You have to move fast and decisively in these matters.

Where's a teacher getting $500? Are they getting paid that well now?

Bad teacher. Throw her ass in jail.
But let’s be honest about this situation. She paid the young man to do something any 15 year old would readily do for free, in a heartbeat! What every 15 year old boy is hoping to do, trying to do, fantasizing about doing on a daily basis. Paid, free, no matter. They will now brainwash this 15 year old into being a ‘forever victim’. Yup, every poor choice he makes for the rest of his life will be that teacher’s fault. He’ll probably have to be on disability. Poor poor child (get real).
Now before you start with the insults, I am NOT saying what she did is ok. She should be punished. I’m simply pointing out reality.
