Bond denied for accused teacher
Jackson pleads not guilty in molestation case
Amy Bass Jackson
Bulloch County Superior Court Judge Gates Peed denied bond Wednesday for a former Bulloch County middle school teacher charged with the sexual molestation of a teenage male student. In an arraignment immediately following the hearing in Courtroom A of the county Judicial Annex, Amy Bass Jackson, who resigned her position as a language arts teacher at William James Middle School after the accusations came to light in late July, entered a plea of “not guilty.” She was arrested July 27 and charged with aggravated child molestation, three counts of child molestation, statutory rape, enticing a child for indecent purposes, sexual assault by a person with supervisory or disciplinary authority, two counts computer or electronic child exploitation, sexual exploitation of children and six counts of furnishing harmful material to minors.
