WENTWORTH, N.C. — A Rockingham County grand jury indicted a former high school teacher Monday on two counts of sexual activity with a student.

Whitney Dow Buck, 38, of Eden, resigned from her teaching position at Morehead High School after Eden Police arrested her on Jan. 18.

Buck was arrested the day after police received a tip that she may have had inappropriate sexual contact with a male student who is less than 18 years old.

On Monday, the grand jury handed down a true bill of indictment, which essentially means there is enough evidence to move forward with the case.

Buck is in the Rockingham County Jail. She is due in court on Wednesday.
