DESOTO COUNTY, Miss. — A DeSoto County Schools teacher’s assistant was arrested this week on molestation charges.
The DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department charged Amy Craft with molesting-touching child for lustful purpose.
DCSD said early Thursday morning at approximately 1 a.m. a deputy on routine patrol spotted a suspicious vehicle in front of Center Hill High School on Kirk Road in Olive Branch.
The Deputy approached the vehicle and found 48-year-old Amy Craft, a teaching assistant with DeSoto County Schools, with a minor, under the age of 16.
She is possibly facing additional charges in other jurisdictions, DCSD said.

“School officials are cooperating fully with local law enforcement regarding the former teacher’s assistant.”
Craft will appear before a Justice Court Judge but a court date has not been set at this time.
