Jeremy Dale Francis Facing Additional Charges

Jeremy Dale Francis, a former Scott County Virginia Rye Cove High School teacher who already awaiting sentencing on Child Pornography and Soliticing charges is now facing a re-indictment on similar charges in Wise County, Virginia. Chuck Slemp, Commonwealth Attorney for Wise County has reviewed the case information and said that he had withdrawn the pending charges in order to allow time for the charges to be re-filed with a Grand Jury at a future date with additional charges.
Wise County will not be proceeding with the Rape charges against the former Rye Cove teacher after his Hearing in Circuit Court. Francis had entered an Alford Plea in 2016 after prosecutors found hundreds of inappropriate underage female pictures on his computer.
Francis had pled guilty in Scott County on charges of Sexual Exploitation of a minor for having nude photos of students on his computer. He was sentenced to two years in prison but was released after serving only seven months.
