SMITHFIELD, N.C. — A West Johnston High School teacher who was charged with statutory rape of a student has bonded out of jail.
A Johnston County Jail spokesperson confirmed Doll bonded out within the last few days on Wednesday night.
Doll, 37, of Clayton is charged with statutory rape for a student younger than the age of 15. She is also charged with sexual act with a student and indecent liberties with a student.
Court documents list one victim’s name. Warrants show the student attended West Johnston High School and is younger than 15 years old.
Earlier this month, Doll appeared before a judge and asked for a lower bond, saying that she has four kids and works full-time to support them. The judge initially denied her request on Sept. 6.
A spokesperson for Johnston County Schools said that Doll resigned from her position as English teacher on Sept. 2. She first started out as a substitute teacher in the school system and then was hired as an English teacher in August 2021.
An arrest warrant shows the alleged sexual abuse happened on Aug. 12.
Doll, who was once nominated for “Teacher of the Year,” is due back in court on Thursday for a probable-cause hearing.
