ELIZABETHTON — Former Hampton Elementary School teacher Kelly Andrae Smith was arrested Wednesday by the Carter County Sheriff’s Department on a charge of aggravated statutory rape. It was the second time in a week that Smith had been arrested.

Smith, 30, was arrested last week on charges of solicitation of a person under 18 years of age and solicitation of a minor to observe sexual conduct.

Sheriff Chris Mathes said the latest arrest stems from the continuing investigation of Smith’s activities. Mathes said that during the investigation a second juvenile, age 16, came forward and alleged to have had sexual relations with Smith in December.
