GREENFIELD — A former Mt. Vernon teacher’s aide who admitted to having sexual relationships with several high school students is headed to prison after she violated the terms of her probation, court records show.

Kisha Nuckols, 41, 854 W. State Road 52, Fountaintown, admitted in Hancock Circuit Court this week she violated probation by using social media sites on a cellphone she hadn’t registered with her probation officer.

A judge ordered Nuckols to serve the remainder of her four-year sentence in prison, prosecutors said. She has already served 482 days of home detention and will receive credit for that time.

She’ll have to register as a sex offender upon her release from prison, records show.

It’s the second time Nuckols has been accused of disregarding her probation sentence, records show.

Nuckols pleaded guilty to child seduction in late 2016 after she was caught having inappropriate relationships with several Mt. Vernon High School students. She was ordered to spend two years in a home detention program offered by Hancock County Community Corrections plus two years on probation.

She was re-arrested last July after prosecutors and probation officers accused her of violating that sentence.

They said a team of investigators visited Nuckols’ apartment and found bottles of alcohol and cellphones that contained nude photos of Nuckols, court documents state. She also had social media accounts they said she’d been ordered not to use, according to court documents.

Prosecutors wanted to send her to prison then, but it turned out she’d never signed the documents detailing the rules of her probation.

Since she never formally agreed to follow the terms of the county’s probation, prosecutors couldn’t prove she knowingly violated them, officials said at the time.

She was returned to home detention with a warning that if she violated the order again, she’d be sent to prison.

Last month, she was re-arrested on a second probation violation after probation officers learned she had a cellphone she hadn’t told them about, officials said.

Offenders on sex-offender probation are required to register all cellphones with their probation officer, officials said.
