Tonya Craft and ex-husband agree on custody

NEW YORK CITY, NY. (AP)-- Former Georgia kindergarten teacher Tonya Craft, who was acquitted of child sex charges in May, has worked out a child custody agreement with her former husband.

Craft - who now lives in Soddy-Daisy, Tenn., near Chattanooga - also revealed on NBC's "Today" show that she will drop a lawsuit against her former mate, Joal Henke. That came as news to Henke, who sat beside her and took part in the interview.

Henke said he and Craft sat down with no lawyers present and agreed on custody. They did not reveal details.

Craft was accused of molesting three girls, including her own daughter. Her children were sent to live with Henke for 2 1/2 years while the case was resolved.

A jury in north Georgia jury found Craft not guilty on each of 22 charges against her.
