School Administrator Arrested for Child Molestation

A school administrator is behind bars for her role in a relationship with a student, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation says.

Dr. Rachelle Louise Terry, age 43, of Chatsworth, GA, was arrested and charged with child molestation and statutory rape, related to an investigation of Terry, an administrator in the Murray County School System, having a sexual relationship with a student.

Terry was charged with 10 counts of furnishing alcohol to minors during a Halloween party earlier this year. That Murray County District Attorney’s Office investigation revealed the sexual relationship, and they requested the GBI to investigate on November 23, 2022. The arrest on child molestation charges is a result of the GBI’s investigation.

Terry was booked into the Murray County Jail.

This investigation is active and ongoing.

The GBI has asked that anyone with information to contact the GBI Calhoun Field Office at 706-624-1424. Anonymous tips can also be submitted by calling 1-800-597-TIPS (8477), online at, or by downloading the See Something, Send Something mobile app.
