Teacher accused of sexual misconduct with student believed to be on run with teen boy

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — A 30-year-old Mississippi teacher arrested just weeks ago for sexual misconduct with a student is believed to be on the run with a 16-year-old boy, according to WDAM.

Oscar O’Neal, 16, was reported missing by his mother at about 1 a.m. Monday and is believed to be on the run with Nicole Jackson. The former Forrest County teacher was recently charged with sexual battery by a person in a position of trust or authority.

Hattiesburg police first started investigating Jackson in mid-March after learning of an alleged inappropriate relationship with a student.

Jackson has since bonded out of jail but has an active warrant out for her arrest.
