New details emerge about teacher accused of rape

(WMC-TV) - New details are emerging about allegations that a Jackson, Mississippi school teacher had sex with a 14-year-old middle school student.

A federal lawsuit has been filed against Willie Moorehead and Jackson Public Schools. He was arrested at his home on Friday night. Moorehead is accused of taking the teenager to a public park on the Rankin county side of the reservoir on Monday, where the alleged sexual encounter occurred. 

Officials say the teacher lured the student out of her home in Jackson.

"This is a 60-year-old teacher involved in a relationship with a 14-year-old student. That's my understanding. He is a teacher and she was one of his students. So yes if you are like me, it just makes me sick to my stomach," said Rankin County Mississippi Sheriff Bryan Bailey.

The teen's mother said this was not the teacher's first sexual liaison with her daughter. She claims Moorehead had sex with her daughter last year when she was only 13.
