Upstate teacher accused of kissing, fondling student almost 20 years ago

GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC (WYFF) - An Upstate teacher and athletic director has resigned after she was charged with committing a lewd act on a child, among other charges, according to the school district and deputies.

Deputies said on July 30, the Greenville County Sheriff's Office received a report of a possible sexual assault of a former student at Blue Ridge Middle School that occurred between January 1995 and January 1996.

The investigation revealed that Sherri McCall Windsor was employed at Blue Ridge Middle School during the time the incident occurred as a teacher, cheerleading coach and math tutor, deputies said.

Deputies say the victim was 13 years old and an eighth-grade student at the school and developed a relationship with Windsor while being tutored by her.

Investigators said they learned of at least one instance where Windsor kissed and inappropriately touched the victim while taking him home.

This incident occurred in her vehicle and not on school property, deputies said.

They said Windsor was aware of the age of the victim at the time due to him being one of her students.

Windsor has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, committing a lewd act upon a child under 16 years old and criminal sexual conduct with a minor second degree where the victim is 11 to 14 years old.

Windsor is currently being held in the Greenville County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.

Greenville County School District Director of Communications Oby Lyles said Windor resigned from her position at Blue Ridge as a math teacher and athletic director on Tuesday.

Lyles said Windor had worked at Blue Ridge High since 1998 and previously worked at Blue Ridge Middle from 1994 to 1998 and Sevier Middle School from 1990-1994.
