Man Who Picked Up Child From Middle School Arrested

A Selma man who allegedly picked up a 15-year-old girl from Smithfield Middle School earlier this year, saying he was a relative, has been arrested. Carnell Johnette Atkinson, 30, is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Atkinson pretended to be a relative when he showed up at the school to sign the girl out of class, according to Smithfield Police Det. Lt. Keith Powell. The teen reportedly left willingly with Atkinson, but authorities said he still broke the law. Atkinson was later released after posting a $2,500 bond.
