LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - A former Moulton Middle School teacher accused of having sex with a student was found not guilty on Thursday morning.

The prosecutor working on the case confirmed that verdict to WAFF 48 News.

Taylor Boyles was arrested in 2017 and charged with school employee engaging in a sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student under the age of 19.
