A 17-year-old girl, R., was sexually assaulted by her homeschool teacher, Alisa Andrews, over the course of nine months.
Andrews was employed as a homeschool teacher by the Northwest Arkansas Christian Homeschool Education Association. She taught a biology class at Rogers Christian Church; R. took the class in fall 2018. Andrews was also the director of a community theater program in which R. participated. Andrews began sexually assaulting R. in March 2019, assaulting her approximately 20 times. When R. tried to escape the abuse, Andrews threatened to kill herself.
The abuse came to light when a parent told the church pastor about Andrews’s behavior, and he reported it to the authorities. Andrews was charged with sexual assault.
