Teacher accused of sex with 2 high school students

When a local high school teacher is accused of having sex with a student, it is sure to make headlines in Lansing. Though the following case is taking place outside of Michigan, it is a good example of the sort of sex crimes charges that the accused person should find a criminal defense attorney to defend against.

The defendant in this case is a 31-year-old high school English teacher. Authorities have accused her of having sex with two students, an 18-year-old and a 17-year-old.

Police arrested her in December on a charge of institutional sexual assault. They said that the teacher and the 18-year-old male had exchanged text messages, which led to meeting outside of school. The teacher allegedly performed oral sex and sexual intercourse with the younger man. Though the male in this case is not a minor, it appears that the fact that he was a student at the defendant’s school would make a sexual relationship between them illegal.

Now, investigators say they have evidence of another inappropriate relationship between the woman and student, this time with a male who was 17 at the time. They claim that the teen texted the teacher after a fellow student told him that the teacher had said he was “good looking.”

The two allegedly exchanged explicit text messages for several weeks. After that, the two went on a car ride that led to kissing and touching, police say. Another night, the defendant allegedly performed oral sex on the teen.

These charges are very serious, and could lead to prison time, having to register as a sex offender, and not being allowed to teach again. Anyone arrested on suspicion of a sex crime, whether against a minor or an adult, should speak to a defense attorney before answering any questions from the police.
