Former Franklin school employee indicted on sexual misconduct charges


A former Franklin school employee was indicted by a Warren County grand jury on nine counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Christina Moses, 25, of Franklin, allegedly had sexual contact with two boys who were younger than 16 years of age between May and November 2017, according to Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell. The charges are fourth-degree felonies.

Fornshell said the investigation showed the actions between Moses and the two boys were not connected to the school district and that none of the alleged incidents happened at the school.

An arrest warrant was issued for Moses on Monday, and as of late Monday afternoon Moses had not been taken into custody. Fornshell said suspects are typically arraigned on charges shortly after being taken into custody.

At a news conference held on Nov. 22, 2017, Franklin police and school district officials said the employee was placed on administrative leave but later resigned following accusations of possible sexual misconduct with a student.

Police initially said the school administration conducted an administrative inquiry into rumors of sexual misconduct by a school employee with a 15-year-old student. Within two hours, the parent, student and employee were all interviewed by school staff. At the news conference, police and school officials said they did not believe improper conduct occurred on school grounds or during school hours.

According to district records, Moses was hired as a substitute worker in October 2016 and was hired as cafeteria cashier and second shift custodian in September 2016.

On Nov. 27, 2017, the Franklin Board of Education accepted Moses’ resignation as cashier at Pennyroyal Elementary and a custodian at the Hampton Bennett Building.
