A former Gurdon school teacher accused of coercing a student into having sex was given a lifetime ban Tuesday from ever applying for a license to teach.
Aaron Cupp reached a plea deal this week in a 2021 case in which he was charged for sexual assault. The charge stemmed from allegations by a student that Cupp forced her to have sex in 2017.
Cupp, now 31, signed a plea statement Tuesday admitting to a lesser offense of third-degree battery.
In addition to the lifetime ban on teaching, the former coach was sentenced to a year of supervised probation and ordered to pay $2,700 in fines and court costs.
Cupp was represented by Little Rock attorney Bill James. Hot Spring County Prosecutor Teresa Howell represented the state.

They always let them off easy. If you’re wondering why Arkansas is crawling with pedophiles, it’s because they give them a slap on the wrist and release them back onto the streets to find their next victim. That didn’t work for Barry Allan Walker, now did it? It’s been proven a million times that pedophiles never change. They should ALL get life in prison as a mandatory minimum. But that’ll never happen so long as pedophile elites control the government and the AR GOP.
And people wonder why women hesitate to report being raped……this is why 3rd degree battery…wow
