The case of Rockland resident Christine McCallum, 30, who is charged with seven counts of rape of a 13-year-old boy who she tutored for years, has been continued until Sept. 2.
McCallum is charged with raping a boy more than 300 times over a three-year period. McCallum was formerly a teacher at the Woodsdale Elementary School in Abington.
She was in court to answer the charges on Wednesday morning but the case was pushed back. Her husband, Scott was by her side in the courtroom.
In the absence of District Attorney Sharon Donnatelli, Assistant District Attorney Susan McDonough represented the case Wednesday morning at Plymouth Superior Court in Brockton.
When reached by phone Wednesday, the secretary of McCallum’s attorney — Kevin Mahoney — said Mahoney was “not interested” in commenting on the case.
McCallum pled not guilty at her arraignment last January and was released on $1,000 bail.
McCallum, who was a fifth-grade teacher at the Woodsdale School, was fired shortly after her arrest on Jan. 8, 2009.
Four of the charges are based in Rockland and the other three are based in Abington.
She was originally arraigned in Brockton District Court in January for the three Abington charges, and then arraigned at Hingham District Court on the Rockland charges, but she was indicted March 10 and transferred to the superior court level.
McCallum has been ordered to stay away from the boy, his family, and all children under 16. She also is being made to wear a GPS tracking device.
