  • Bus monitor pleads to sex acts charge

    A former Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) employee entered an Alford plea in Henry County Circuit Court Thursday to resolve the sex abuse charges against her.
    Tara Nutter, who was employed by HCPS as a bus monitor beginning in August of 2015, was accused of engaging in sex acts with an 18-year-old male student. However, the charges did not stem from that relationship, which was allegedly consensual, but from the fact that Nutter and the student engaged in those sex acts while on the school bus where other students under the age of 16 could have witnessed them.
