Oxford School Teacher’s Aid Fired After Rape Arrest
The Oxford School Board has fired a teacher’s aid after she had been arrested last month on allegations she had sexual contact twice with a child under the age of 15.
20-year-old Heaven Parrish of Smithville Flats was arrested January 25 and charged with rape, criminal sex act and endangering the welfare of a child. She is free on bail.
The Oxford Academy and Central School Board fired Parrish February 4. At the same meeting, Middle School Principal Heather Fredenburg was suspended. School officials say the suspension is pending an investigation but no other information is available.
