Sentencing postponed for former Chilton County teacher

Jennifer McNeill

CHILTON COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) – A former Chilton County teacher accused of having sex with a student will be sentenced next month. The sentencing was postponed following a new development released in court Thursday.

Jennifer McNeill, 39, previously taught at Thorsby High School. She pleaded guilty to rape and sodomy.

On Thursday, the judge delayed her sentencing after prosecutors claimed McNeill posted a Facebook message claiming she was innocent. McNeill allegedly wrote the post the day after she entered the guilty plea.

She’s now scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 7.
