(The State) A Dutch Fork Middle School cafeteria worker accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy at her home has been arrested, Columbia police announced Tuesday.

Lawanda Ann Cummings, 42, is charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, according to an arrest warrant.

Since the woman worked in the school cafeteria, she didn’t have routine direct contact with students, Lexington-Richland School District 5 spokesman Mark Bounds said, adding the woman and student were acquainted outside of school.
