Fugitive former teacher captured in Chicago

Federal authorities have apprehended Cara Dickey, the former South Buffalo Charter School teacher who had served jail time after pleading guilty to rape charges for having sex with her 14-year-old male student. Dickey was wanted for violating the terms of her parole, including the removal of a state-issued security ankle bracelet.

Dickey was found in a Chicago-area motel room along with another woman, 25-year-old Candice Brighon, who was also wanted on a parole violation.
