Tennessee Teacher Accused of Raping Student Rearrested for Coercion and Stalking

Alissa McCommon, a 38-year-old teacher from Covington, Tennessee, has been rearrested on charges of coercion of a witness, aggravated stalking, and harassment. The arrest comes after McCommon allegedly sent a foreboding text message to a 12-year-old student she is accused of raping.

The Covington Police Department provided details of the case, stating that McCommon was initially arrested on September 8, 2023, for the rape of a child. She was released on conditional bond with no contact allowed with the victim or any minors other than her own children. However, on September 26, the police received information that McCommon had initiated additional contact with the victim using a different phone number. The evidence suggests that she used a specific code word known to the victim to confirm that he was alone before sending explicit messages. McCommon also admitted to a sexual encounter with the victim in these messages.

The victim promptly reported the incident to law enforcement, leading to McCommon’s rearrest. She is currently being held without bond at the Tipton County jail. McCommon had previously been fired from her position as a teacher at Charger Academy on August 24, following allegations made by a parent.

It is important to note that most perpetrators of child sexual abuse are individuals known to the child or their family, according to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN). Abusers often manipulate victims into silence using various tactics, including their position of power over the victim.
