Amy Bass Jackson
Amy Bass Jackson, a Bulloch County middle school teacher accused of molesting a teenage student last July, shook visibly Wednesday as she pled guilty to three of eight charges. Bulloch County Superior Court Judge Gates Peed sentenced Jackson to 15 years, five to serve, then suspended the sentence. The former eighth grade language arts teacher at William James Middle was given 500 to 600 days of detention after pleading guilty to statutory rape, sexual exploitation of children and unlawful disposition of sexually explicit material to minors.
