Paragould Teacher Arrested On Additional Sex Charges

PARAGOULD - A second minor is claiming he and a former Paragould school teacher had a sexual relationship, according to the Greene County Sheriff's Department.

The 16 year old boy says he and Monica Cluck, 26 of Rector, had a relationship that started late last year when he was 15 and ended in May of this year.

Cluck now faces two counts of sexual assault in the first degree.  She's also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  The first charges came last week when a video tape surfaced showing Cluck and a 17 year old boy drinking alcohol and having sex.  Both boys were in a church group she taught at Marmaduke First Baptist Church.

Cluck resigned from her teaching position at Paragould's Woodrow Wilson Elementary last week after being charged.  She is out of jail after posting a $5,000 bond.  Cluck will appear in court on August 16.
