The Mary Haley Wade Stalking Case

     In 2014, Mary Haley Wade began teaching in the Special Education Department of Hillwood High School in Nashville, Tennessee. Four years later, Mary and her husband were going through a contentious divorce. On June 29, 2018, the school teacher was arrested on the misdemeanor charge of violating a protection order that had been filed against her by her estranged husband.

     Wade's husband claimed that she had sent him death threats, repeatedly called his place of work, posted embarrassing photographs of him on social media, and sent unwanted messages to his girl friend. As a result, the husband filed a protection order against her.

     On July 5, 2018, a judge agreed to drop the charge against Wade if, after a period of six months, she did not violate her husband's protection order.

     The special education teacher, on August 13, 2008, was again charged with violating the protection order. Six weeks later, the judge once again agreed to drop this charge if Wade stopped harassing her estranged husband for a period of a year.

     In October 2008, after leaving a handwritten note on her husband's car, a prosecutor charged Wade with yet another protection order violation. Two months later, The Hillwood High School teacher allegedly posted unflattering photographs of her husband on his Instagram account.

     Up until January 5, 2019, all of the charges against Mary Wade had been misdemeanors, but on this date the prosecutor charged her with felony aggravated stalking as well as another restraining order violation. The suspect posted her $1,500 signature bond and was released from the county jail.

     Following her fifth arrest in a period of six months, the superintendent of the Metro Public School System placed Mary Wade on administrative leave. As of this writing, Wade's felony case is pending as well as her status as a teacher at Hillwood High.

  1. I would hope by now ( January 26,2022) that Ms. Haley's legal issues will have been resolved. I think I met her in Nashville public library three or four years ago.
