Former Red River County teacher gets five years

CLARKSVILLE - A former middle school teacher in Clarksville has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to charges involving sexual misconduct with a 13-year-old male student.

The Texarkana Gazette reports that 32-year-old Randi Lynn Bratcher Savage pleaded guilty to indecency with a child and aggravated sexual assault of a child. District Judge Eric Clifford sentenced her to concurrent five-year terms on the charges.

Savage was a teacher at Cheatham Middle School in Clarksville. She was accused of contacting the boy through Facebook and text messages, which led to sexual encounters.

Prosecutor Val Varley says Savage must also surrender her teaching license and register as a sex offender for the rest of her life. An attorney for Savage couldn't immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
