Suspended Arnold High School Athletic Director Releases Exclusive Statement

Posted: Updated:

Arnold High School's suspended Athletic Director, Karisa Wesley released an exclusive statement to News 13 on Thursday evening.

"I deny all allegations in the letter. I want to thank the Arnold students, especially the volleyball players, administration and faculty, parents and community for the outpouring of prayers, love and support."


News 13 is learning more about the investigation into Arnold High School's suspended Athletic Director, Karisa Wesley.

Public records show it began with school board member Steve Moss reporting a phone conversation he had with Arnold Booster and former Coach Mark Cowart. A separate complaint came in via email from a former Arnold teacher, Peggy Rambosk Dawson. Dawson's email included a hand written statement from former football player, Andre Allen. Both allege that Wesley had sex with former football player and Alabama signee Eddie Williams two years ago.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office will not file charges against Wesley. Major Tommy Ford says Williams admitted to having sex with Wesley but says he was over 18. Williams originally told the school district he did not have sex with Wesley. Ford also says any allegations of drug and alcohol use are past the one-year statute of limitations for misdemeanors. Williams and Allen have conflicting statements in both the Sheriff's Office and District investigations.

The school districts investigation also says Wesley is in a relationship with Arnold Football and Basketball Coach, Bobby Britton. The District says this is in violation of the district's supervisor-subordinate relationship policy.

Superintendent Bill Husfelt is recommending Wesley's termination at Tuesday's board meeting. Wesley declined to comment at this time.
