Mid-south teacher sex trial: husband set up surveillance

Testimony resumes Wednesday in the trial of a former Mid-South teacher accused of having sex with a teenage boy.

Defendant Monica Cluck's husband, the first witness to take the stand Tuesday, testified that he "had to find a way to prove she was cheating" and decided to do so by "setting up surveillance" in his house.

Cluck resigned from her teaching job in Paragould, Arkansas after the tape surfaced showing the alleged incident.

"There is a lot of good things that will come out tomorrow that will help explain how this event occurred and to show this was not a criminal act," said defense attorney Randel Miller.

The state is trying to prove Cluck was in the role of an authority figure at the time of the alleged incident. She was working at a church in Marmaduke where she met the teen.
