Carrie McCandless, Former Brighton Charter High School Teacher, Faces Arrest … Contact with Victim

Carrie McCandless, the former social studies teacher and cheer-leading coach at Brighton Charter High School is accused of contacting her former 17 year old victim whom she had previous sexual contact with and faces possible arrest.

McCandless, 30, is charged with sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. McCandless has been free on $20,000 bail, but an arrest warrant was issued after prosecutors on Thursday filed a motion alleging the former teacher contacted the victim two days after both attended a court hearing Jan. 22.

Carrie McCandless and her attorney are denying the contact charges. In one of the more bizarre scenarios of this case, Carrie McCandless is the wife of Brighton Charter High School Principal Chris McCandless. Not too embarrassing. McCandless was offered a plea deal in her sexual contact case; however, one wonders if this will change that situation.

Alleged assault victim says ex-teacher phoned

Larimer County authorities have issued a new arrest warrant for former Brighton Charter School teacher Carrie McCandless after prosecutors accused her of contacting the alleged victim in her sexual assault case.
Prosecutors asked the judge to revoke McCandless’ bond on Thursday, and an arrest warrant, with a $25,000 bond, was issued for her on Friday.

Documents detailing the latest allegations against McCandless have been sealed.

Trani said the arrest documents allege that the student received a call from a woman he believed to be McCandless. Trani said the teen told authorities the call came from a 415 area code, which is the area code for the San Francisco area.

Trani said McCandless does not have access to any phones with a 415 area code, and he said he believes the publicity surrounding the case may have led a prankster to call the teen. (Denver Post)

  1. I’m against double-standards, however, I can’t really see anything criminal going on here. She should lose her job, that’s for sure, but it is a waste of taxpayers’ money to criminally prosecute this woman.
