Who is Melissa Blair ?
Members of a Tennessee community expressed shock and outrage last week after a 38-year-old woman was accused of using vape pens and other inducements to lure local high school students into having s*x with her, according to a report.
Melissa Blair, of Englewood, was arrested and faces charges of solicitation of a minor, 18 counts of statutory rape, four counts of human trafficking by sponsoring prostitution and forfeiture of personal property, reported WTVC-TV of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
There were at least nine victims, who were between the ages of 14 and 17 at the time of the alleged crimes and attended the same high school, the station reported.
The mother confirmed that her son received items in exchange for the illicit encounters.
The station reports that the boys were between the ages of 14 and 17 at the time of the alleged crimes.
Blair’s attorney could not be reached for comment.
Blair’s bail terms prevent him from having contact with any of the victims. He is also prohibited from setting foot on any school property.
Authorities believe there are more victims, McMinn County District Attorney Steve Crump told the station.
“Parents need to talk to their kids to get them to express themselves because it’s not okay. It’s really not okay,” Englewood resident Christie Teague told the station, reacting to the accusations against Blair.
“I would be furious if it happened to my kids,” Teague added.
“This is not just about putting a perpetrator behind bars,” the mother of one of the teens, who requested anonymity, told the station. “This is about healing families.”
