Apopka teacher accused in child molestation case bonds out of jail

APOPKA, Fla. —

An Apopka middle school teacher accused in a child molestation case walked out of jail on a  $5,000 bond Thursday afternoon.

Channel 9's cameras were rolling as Kimberly Honaker quickly ran to a silver SUV shortly after posting bond.

Investigators said Honaker is married, but failed to intervene when her boyfriend, Robert Pruitt, molested a 13-year-old girl inside her Apopka home.

Police said she participated in the crime, while the victim and Pruitt slept in the same bed. She was originally arrested last week and charged with failing to report the abuse, but police later determined she was involved sexually with the victim.

Pruitt was denied bond and was charged with 21 counts of child molestation.

In court Thursday, Honaker's attorney argued she has extensive family in the area and is not a flight risk.

The two children in the home have been placed into protective custody buy the state.
