No jury had been selected by the end of the day Monday for the Tonya Craft trial, which is being held at the Catoosa County Courthouse in downtown Ringgold.

Craft, a 37-year-old former Chickamauga Elementary School kindergarten teacher, is facing 22 counts: 12 counts of child molestation, six counts of aggravated sexual battery and six counts of aggravated child molestation.

Jury selections for two separate trials were held at the court Monday and both courtrooms were filled to capacity.

Officials said there were 200 potential jurors for the Craft case. They said jury selection will resume Tuesday morning.

No media or private citizens, except for immediate family, were allowed in the courtroom during the jury selec-tion. A gag order in the case prohibits reporters from being in the courtroom during jury selection.
