There is a bond of $30,000 for each count, meaning her total bond is $90,000. Bel posted her bond and is now out of jail awaiting her case to proceed.

The Sheriff’s department began to investigate the charges after a tip from the Pelham Police Department.

Authorities did not release the exact age of the victim nor was he identified but the charges relate to sexual abuse of children under 19 years of age se he is obviously under 19.

Bell was immediately placed on administrative leave when the allegations came to light. She subsequently resigned her position.

Principal Bell divorced her husband in August and shares joint custody of the couple’s son with him.

Local residents are disheartened over this latest crime against children in area schools. This is the second such incident in the news in as many weeks in Shelby County.

A former Spain Park High School teacher, Stephanie Suggs Millard, 34, was arrested a year ago and pleaded guilty to the same charges only two weeks ago.

“It’s disheartening to hear that happened once again,” said local parent Heather Bennett. “You’re already worried about the safety of your children with all the school shootings, on top of the fact you can’t trust you teachers, much less a principal now.”
