Police: Lunch lady touched teen inappropriately


ATHENS, BRADFORD COUNTY (WOLF) -- A lunch lady from Athens is on paid leave after police charged her with two counts of indecent assault.

Police say Tracy Gault, 44, either grabbed or hit a teenager's genitals through his shorts three times, while making a sound like "eeooww."

The criminal complaint says Gault kissed him on the mouth up to 20 times and bought things to get near him, calling herself a "cougar," and making comments about sex toys and snuggling.

The alleged incidents did not happen at Harlan Rowe Middle School, where she works.

The complaint mentions that two alleged victims were interviewed.

Athens Area S.D. superintendent Craig Stage says Gault was suspended from her job on Tuesday because it's the "safest thing for everyone," especially the students.
