A former Queen’s Grant Charter School teacher has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of minor.
Mint Hill Police responded to Stoxmeade Drive in at 4 am on July 7 reference to a vehicle
breaking and entering in progress. While patrolling the area, officers encountered a suspicious vehicle parked in the area. The owner of the vehicle, Kyle Doherty, 28, was later located in the area and questioned about the vehicle break-in.
Doherty told police he was meeting a former student of his nearby because he was
counseling her. Mr. Doherty was formerly employed at Queens Grant Charter School, where the girl is a student. Police determined that Doherty was not connected with the property crime on Stoxmeade Drive.
However, later that day, officers made contact with the juvenile’s parents who said that the 14-year-old girl had been leaving her residence in the early hours of the morning, without
permission from her parents to meet Doherty. Doherty and the juvenile were questioned
at length individually and it was determined that nothing sexual had taken place between the two.
Because Doherty was involved in the juvenile’s decision to leave the residence without her parents’ permission, he was charged with four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, one count for each time they met and the juvenile left her residence without permission.
