Angel Lindle's Facebook Profile
Ninety Six, South Carolina (The Weekly Vice) -- Angel Simmons Lindle, a 37-year-old science teacher at Edgewood Middle School in Ninety Six, South Carolina has been arrested on charges of repeatedly having sex with a 14-year-old student.
According to the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office, Lindle was arrested Friday and charged with seven counts of criminal sexual conduct with a child.
An investigation was launched early Friday after the alleged victim filed a complaint with the Ninety Six Police Department on Thursday. Authorities obtained a warrant, gathered items at the suspects home, conducted interviews and then arrested Lindle at her home at 1:00 Friday afternoon, according to Sheriff tony Davis.
"The victim, who was 14 at the time but is 15 now, told us of numerous incidents between he and the suspect," said Davis.
The Sheriff's Office considers the investigation ongoing, and cautioned against ruling out additional charges.
"During the interview (with Lindle), I think some more information came out for us to follow up on," Davis added.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
The investigation started Friday morning and yet they had her arrested by a little after noon the same day? That's a mighty fast investigation, I have to say. Perhaps a little too fast unless she confessed.
