The professional educator’s license of 23-year-old Brianna Stanley is subject for revocation following her arrest last week on felony charges involving sex crimes against her 12-year-old student.

Stanley is charged with three counts of felony statutory offense, five counts of felony indecent liberties by a teacher with a student, five counts of sexual activity by a teacher with a student and one count of third-degree felony child exploitation related to child pornography, according to Lt. Jessica Sadonikov with the Scotland County Sheriff’s Office.

Sadonikov added Stanley is no longer a teacher at Carver Middle School in Laurinburg as of last Thursday .

Stanley is being held at the Scotland County Detention Center on a $2.5 million bond.

N.C. Department of Public Instruction Communications Director Drew Elliot said he can’t comment as to whether or not Stanley’s professional educator’s license is up for review for possible revocation.

Instead, Elliott provided us with a list of grounds for suspending or revoking a license:

1.fraud, material misrepresentation or concealment in the application for the license

2.changes in or corrections of the license documentation that make the individual ineligible to hold a license

3.conviction or entry of a plea of no contest, as an adult, of a crime if there is a reasonable and adverse relationship between the underlying crime and the continuing ability of the person to perform any of his/her professional functions in an effective manner

4.final dismissal of a person by a local board pursuant to G.S. 115C-325(e)(1)b. [immorality], if there is a reasonable and adverse relationship between the underlying misconduct and the continuing ability of the person to perform any of his/her professional functions effectively

5.final dismissal of a person by a LEA under G.S. 115C-325(e)(1)e. [physical or mental incapacity]

6.resignation from employment with a LEA without thirty work days' notice, except with the prior consent of the local superintendent;

7.revocation of a license by another state

8.any other illegal, unethical or lascivious conduct by a person, if there is a reasonable and adverse relationship between the underlying conduct and the continuing ability of the person to perform any of his/her professional functions in an effective manner; and

9.failure of school administrator to report revocable conduct. The State Board also accepts the voluntary surrender of a license, but the file must include the basis for the surrender that established conduct that could have resulted in suspension or revocation.

We’ve contacted Stanley’s attorney for a statement, but he has yet to get back with us.

She’s being held at the Scotland County Detention Center on a $2.5 million bond.
