The GBI has arrested and charged Indian Creek Elementary School principal Anastagia Carter, 51, of Douglas, Georgia, with two counts of 1st Degree Cruelty to a Child, two counts of 3rd Degree Cruelty to a Child, two counts of False Imprisonment, and two counts of Simple Battery stemming from incidents that occurred at Indian Creek Elementary School.
The GBI was requested by the Coffee County Board of Education Police Department after they received information regarding an incident between Carter and a student. During the investigation, GBI agents also learned of a second incident. Carter was taken into custody today by the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office.
Friday afternoon, the Coffee County School System released the following statement: “The Coffee County School System has been notified of allegations concerning the principal at Indian Creek Elementary School. When this matter first came to the attention of the school system, a report was immediately made to the Department of Family and Children Services and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The principal was immediately placed and remains on administrative leave. The GBI is leading the investigation, and all questions and concerns should be directed to the Region 4 Investigative Office of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in Douglas.”
Carter was booked into the Coffee County Jail and released on $25,000 bond.
This investigation is active and ongoing. Once the investigation is complete, the case file will be given to the Waycross Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
