Teacher accused of performing sex acts with 14-year-old boy

Carole Ann Hope, 36-year-old math teacher at New Heights Middle School,Darlington, South Carolina, has been accused of engaging in sex acts with at least one of her male students.

Darlington County sheriff’s investigators arrested Carole Ann Hope, of 1105 Snyder Lane, Hartsville, in the end of the last month. She is charged with one count each of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and committing a lewd act on a minor, booking reports show. Arrest warrants from the State Law Enforcement Division accuse Hope of having sex with the 14-year-old boy at her Hartsville home and at a hotel in Horry County between March 1 and Oct. 31. One of the warrants says Hope met the teen while teaching seventh-grade math at New Heights Middle School in Jefferson.

According to the Chesterfield County School District, Hope has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation and a substitute has been placed in her classroom.

Horry County Magistrate Aaron Butler set a $10,000 surety bond — $5,000 for each charge — for Hope, who was released last week from J. Reuben Long Detention Center. SLED asked the judge to order that Hope have no contact, even through social media, with the alleged victim.

Hope’s next court appearance is scheduled for 9 a.m. Dec. 14 at 9 a.m. at the Darlington County Courthouse. She is scheduled to appear next in Horry County court Dec. 16.
