A judge in Decatur, Alabama has thrown out charges against a teacher for allegedly having sexual relations with two students when she taught at Decatur High School. 44-year-old Carrie Witt had her charges dismissed without prejudice on constitutional grounds on Thursday.
According to WHNT, Witt was accused of sleeping with two students between 16 and 19 years old.
Morgan County Circuit Judge Glenn Thompson ruled students can consent to sex under state law once they turn 16, unless someone uses a “position of authority” to “coerce, groom, or otherwise obtain the illegitimate consent of the alleged victims.” Although a teacher may be in a position of authority, the judge found that it “clearly does not exist between every school employee and every student regardless of where that student is enrolled.”

Good news for Soulja Boy. After being arrested for violating his probation last week, charges against the rapper have been dropped. “I am looking forward to focusing back on the music and new business for 2017,” Soulja Boy said in a statement per XXL.
Soulja Boy was arrested after he made threats on the Internet, hinting that he had guns at his home. After pleading no contest to an earlier charge of carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle, the rapper is not allowed to have a firearm. When cops arrived, they found a gun and he was arrested.
XXL shares that he was bailed out of Van Nuys jail in Los Angeles in under 24 hours. He then jumped back on social media, firing shots at rappers and his ex. “F*ck quavo, Lil yachty, and Nia Riley,” he wrote. “I ain’t going no where. Quavo called the police on me. Finna go f*ck my B*tch.

Ciara and her ex, Future have been in and out of court since the singer first filed a lawsuit against her co-parent back in February, but is the war finally over? Kind of, but not quite.
According to TMZ, Ciara’s lawyer has filed the necessary paperwork to dismiss the libel claim against Future. If you recall, Ciara originally claimed that Future’s social media bashing (including that time he called her a “b*tch” with “control problems”) negatively affected her career, but because she makes even more money now than when she was with Future, the case doesn’t hold much water.
The judge already dismissed Cici’s defamation claim last week, but according to TMZ‘s sources, Ciara is still suing Future over “false light,” which basically means that she’s accusing the rapper of painting her out to be someone she’s not. Proving false light has nothing to do with income, so who
