Ex-Teacher Gets Probation for Contributing to Delinquency


A former Spanish teacher at Capital High School in Charleston has been sentenced to two years on probation for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Media outlets report that 31-year-old Michelle Elaine Ball of St. Albans was sentenced Tuesday in Kanawha County Circuit Court. She pleaded guilty in October.

Prosecutors say that in 2013, Ball began smoking marijuana with an underage male student and would take him to the movies and on trips.
