KENT, Wash. (AP) - Former students of a Sea Tac teacher charged with rape showed up at a King County courtroom in Kent Thursday to offer their support as she entered a plea of not guilty to a charge of child rape.

KIRO reports (https://bit.ly/1F2XsHA ) they carried signs that said “We stand by you” and said they don’t believe the allegations against Darcy Smith.

The 41-year-old Renton woman is accused of having sex with a student she took into her home as a troubled 12-year-old. He said they started having sex two years later. He reported the incidents last year and is now 19.

Smith was put on leave in August when the district learned of the investigation.

The McMicken Heights sixth-grade teacher is free without bail until her next court appearance March 12.
