McMinn Co. woman indicted on 18 child rape charges

An Englewood woman has been indicted on more than 20 sex charges after investigators say she traded items for sexual encounters with male students who attend McMinn Central High School.

Melissa Blair, 38, is charged with 18 counts of aggravated statutory rape, four counts of human trafficking by patronizing prostitution and one count of solicitation. She turned herself in Tuesday and was booked into the McMinn County Jail on a $100,000 bond. She is not, nor has she ever been, a school employee.

McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy said in a Tuesday press conference that Blair traded items for sexual encounters from spring 2020 through late 2021. Guy said the encounters began through communication on social media.

McMinn County Director of Schools Lee Parkison said the investigation began after an anonymous letter was left in his office.

“Without them this could still be going on,” Parkison said, thanking whomever wrote the letter.

Parkinson said Blair was not employed by the school but was involved with school clubs, “… like other parents are.”

I remind you that McMinn County is where the school board banned "Maus". Methinks they have bigger problems.......

2. That part's not clear to me either

Here's what I now from some other reports. She's part of the booster club so probably someone's mom. No report of what the "items" were anywhere, or how anything relates to trafficking unless she got some girls involved, which is entirely possible. But it sounds like she did at least half the football team....
