By MICAH HENRY
An Alexander County Schools educator, accused of inappropriate behavior with a student, now faces a felony charge, authorities with the Taylorsville Police Department told The Times.
Nikki Setzer Icard, age 30 of Friendship Church Road, Taylorsville, was charged with one felony count of taking indecent liberties with a student and turned herself in to authorities on Tuesday, May 21.
Detective Lisa Johnson of the Taylorsville Police Department noted that authorities received information about the inappropriate behavior, prompting the police investigation.
Police found that Icard had an inappropriate relationship with a male student, which included Icard sending a nude photo of herself to the student. Icard was not only the student’s teacher but also his senior advisor, said Johnson.
Icard was arrested May 21 and was released on a $10,000 secured bond.
Active in school sports, Icard was ACHS women’s golf coach and is reigning Coach of the Year in the NW 3A-4A Conference, according to information published in The Times previously.
Icard has been suspended with pay at the present time. She has been employed with Alexander County Schools since August 2005. Icard graduated in 2001 from ACHS.
