DECATUR — A former substitute teacher originally from Mount Zion was extradited from Macon County to Michigan on charges of sexually assaulting a male student there, according to the Macon County Sheriff's Office.
Allyson B. Moran, 26, was discharged to authorities from Ingham County, Michigan, at about 10:40 a.m. Monday after being held at the Macon County Jail, said Lt. Jamie Belcher.
The Lansing State Journal reported that the alleged assaults took place in April, according to court records, and involved a teenage boy younger than 18 who attended Stockbridge High School in Michigan, where Moran used to teach chemistry and coach girl's soccer.
Lawyer Daniel Reynolds, who represented Moran in the extradition, did not immediately respond to a call for comment late Tuesday.
Moran last week was charged with three felony counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a student and a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a student.
A warrant was placed for Moran's arrest and she was arrested on Thursday at a motel on East Pershing Road in Decatur. Police records show that Moran was arrested at about 5 p.m. on a contempt of court charge, and Belcher said a Decatur police detective assigned to the United States Marshal Service took her into custody.
Macon County court records show that Moran appeared in court on Friday and waived her right to an extradition hearing.
A statement from Stockbridge Schools Superintendent Karl Heidrich said that Moran is no longer affiliated with the district "in any capacity."
She had been employed by a teacher staffing company, the State Journal reported.
