More Charges For Former Erwin HS Teacher

Updated: Friday, April 19 2013, 10:09 PM EDT

Additional charges for a Buncombe County teacher after he allegedly stalked a substitute teacher’s husband.


Erwin High School english teacher and wrestling coach, Tom Carter, was charged Friday with “intimidating a state witness.” Carter has not been teaching or coaching at Erwin High since the original charges were filed in February. He was re-assigned to work at the school system’s central office while he awaited trial.


Carter was accused of stalking after Jenny Morgan’s husband, Jeff Morgan, took out a warrant on him. Jenny Morgan is a substitute teacher at Erwin High and Carter told us she substituted for him in his english class. School officials say nothing related to these charges happened on school property.


The latest charge of “intimidating a state witness” results in a second suspension for Carter, who has been assisting homebound students while he waits on court appearances.
