Study: AL has the highest number of illegal teacher/student relationships

Greetings from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! Here are some of the stories we're working on for tonight:

Shocking study

It's not just your perception. After another teacher, Jennifer Perry (pictured), was arrested and accused of having sexual contact with a student, we've been asking in the newsroom, “Is it just me, or is this happening a lot around here?” A new study says Alabama has the highest rate of illegal teacher/student relationships in the county and tonight Sherea Harris is sitting down with the study's author to drill down into the numbers and try and figure out why.

Training day

How do first responders stay prepared to rescue you from a burning or submerged car? Josh Gauntt got to be part of some drills the Northport Fire & Rescue service conducted today. Tonight, he's dried off and ready to take you inside their training -- and they had to put those skills to use as recently as two weeks ago.

I hope you'll join us for these stories and more starting at 9! You can watch FOX6 News on air, online at or through the WBRC News app.
