Prosecutors discussing plea deal for former teacher charged with rape

Local

The former Benton Elementary teacher accused of rape is due back in court later this month. 

Aubrey Norcross faces charges of child molestation, video voyeurism, and one count of first degree rape. 

Prosecutors want to avoid having victims recount the trauma during a trial, so they are meeting with victims’ families to discuss plea deals. 

A deal will only be offered if the families approve the terms.

Norcross is due back in court on February 12th.
