Woman accused of sex with teen

        LEBANON — A 48-year-old woman who volunteered at South Lebanon Elementary School and tutored other students at her home is jailed on accusations that she had sex with a 15-year-old boy.

        Warren County sheriff's detectives provided few details, except to say Paula Caddo remains under investigation. They declined to comment on whether there are other alleged victims.

        Ms. Caddo, who has adult children and lives alone in an apartment in the 3900 block of Lebanon Road in South Lebanon, was arraigned Tuesday in Warren County Court on charges of corruption of a minor and corrupting another with drugs.

        She is being held at the Warren County Jail in lieu of $25,000.

        Detective Rusty Teague said the incident involving the boy had nothing to do with Ms. Caddo's work at the school.

        She was arrested Saturday, a day after a deputy received information about the incident, Detective Teague said.

        Ms. Caddo volunteered some Fridays since last year, said Kings Local School District spokeswoman Linda Oda.

        “It is our understanding South Lebanon Elementary students were not involved,” Ms. Oda said of the allegations against Ms. Caddo.

        Volunteers are not left alone with students, Ms. Oda said. They perform tasks such as helping to grade papers, set up bulletin boards or assist with mailings.

        “This should not have any kind of impact on school or the way the community views our schools because it had nothing to do with our schools,” Ms. Oda said.
