Woman Fired After Rumors Circulate About Relationship
COVINGTON - A teacher charged with having sex with a student said she was the victim of a wrongful accusation.
Nicole Howell said she was fired from her dream job as an English teacher at Dayton High School after rumors circulated about an alleged improper relationship.
"Every time I think it's going to end because someone's going to step up and see I didn't do anything wrong, they continue it," said the 26-year-old Howell.
Howell said she told the principal about the rumors after she heard them.
"I told him then and there, I've never had sex with this student," Howell said. "I have never seen him. I have never even seen him off campus."
The 16-year-old football player did not attend any class Howell taught, and authorities allege the sexual contact took place in Covington, where Howell lives.
Howell said she went to the police station to take a polygraph test, but instead was arrested, and within days she was suspended and fired.
"There's not DNA, there's no pictures, there's not video, there's nothing," she said.
- All it takes is someone saying you did it!
Her attorneys, Kris Nevels and Eric Deters, said Howell plans to file a civil suit against the school district, Dayton police and the alleged victim.
"I've done everything I can in my power to show my innocence, and yet here I am today," Howell said. "I'm still being prosecuted for something I didn't do, for something I didn't do with no evidence to prosecute me on."
Her next court date is set for Sept. 28.
