Appeal filed in Carrie Cabri Witt teacher-student sex case

An appeal has been filed after an Alabama law was found to be unconstitutional in two teacher-student sex cases.

Charges were dismissed against Carrie Cabri Witt and David Thomas Solomon after a Morgan County Circuit Court judge ruled in a pre-trial order that an Alabama law was unconstitutional in their cases.

According to an August 11th filing, the issue(s) on appeal is, "Trial Court struck down Ala Code 13A-6-81 as unconstitutional as applied in the case and dismissed criminal charges. A joint order was issued in State v. David Solomon, CC16-1264."

The Chief Assistant District Attorney for Morgan County, Alabama certifies that, "...this appeal is not brought for the purpose of delay and that this order will be fatal to the prosecution of this charge if not reversed on appeal. The pre-trial dismissing all counts of the indictment in the above-styled case was in error."
