SEMMES, Ala. (WPMI) A lawsuit could reveal new details in an alleged sexual relationship between a female teacher and a student at Mary G. Montgomery High School.
"I think there may be more to the story, but let's leave it at that," the alleged victim's attorney David Greene told Local 15. "Stay tuned."
Greene believes depositions and information gathered during his office's investigation "will broaden" the case against 28-year-old teacher Alicia Gray.
"I think there will be perhaps more people involved," Greene said.
Greene declined to elaborate on who else will be named in the lawsuit, and the nature of their alleged involvement.
By law, the Mobile County School System cannot be sued, but employees and individuals are fair game.
"The individuals may indeed be covered by insurance by the school system," Green said. "The school system itself may indeed be immune from suit, but individuals are not."
An affidavit obtained by Local 15 alleged Gray started a relationship with a 14-year-old student around New Year's Day. According to the affidavit, the relationship began with inappropriate contact on Facebook, and then escalated into hugging and kissing on campus during and after school hours.
The student told investigators the relationship grew more sexual, and they performed oral sex on each other at or near the boy's home.
Gray's attorney told Local 15 that affidavit should not have been released.
The student has returned to school while the criminal and civil cases move forward.
"He's having a tough time," Greene said. "The comments, all the Facebook messages. You can imagine being fourteen and being subjected to this type of publicity, this type of situation, this type of trauma."
As for damages and how much money the lawsuit is seeking, Greene said that's for a jury to decide.
