Former NWA Teacher Pleads Guilty to Sexually Assaulting Boy


A former Northwest Arkansas teacher pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy.

Charity Allen-Grace, 37, of Springdale was sentenced in Benton County Circuit Court Wednesday to 10 years probation and 120 days in jail for sexually assaulting the teen.

Allen-Grace was arrested in February 2018. 

Siloam Springs police were notified of the case by the Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division.

The boy told authorities that Allen-Grace often walked around nude in front of him. He also said that she also fondled her genitals in front of him and rubbed her breasts against his face, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The boy said said she asked him if she liked her breast augmentation and asked him if he would like to rub her breasts. He said he told her no, according to the affidavit.

Allen-Grace worked as a teacher at Ozark Guidance Center in Siloam Springs. The center confirmed last year that she no longer worked there.

Allen-Grace is currently booked in the Benton County Detention Center, where she will serve her sentence.
