Judge Refuses To Lower Bail For Ex-Teacher Charged With Molesting Boy

A judge has refused to lower bail for a former fifth-grade teacher accused of having sex with a student three years ago.

Thirty-year-old Rebecca Withrow, of Clayton, appeared in court yesterday. The judge refused to lower her $750,000 dollar bail despite claims by her attorney that Withrow needed to be with her two young children.

Withrow was accused of molesting an 11-year-old boy she tutored in early 2003. If convicted, Withrow could spend more than 22 years in prison.
