A woman who used to be a teacher may face life in prison after being accused of having sexual relations with a teenage boy, in addition to giving him marijuana and alcohol before he drove an automobile.
On November 6, a 36-year-old woman who worked at South Fremont High School earlier this year reportedly picked up a teenager, reported as being age 16 or 17 years old, from his residence and drove him to her home. While he was there, the teen allegedly smoked pot and drank alcohol. The pair also allegedly had sex.
It was reported that when the boy was going to go home, the woman believed she was too drunk to drive. She reportedly allowed him to borrow her vehicle to drive himself back to his house.
When he was on the road, an officer with the Saint Anthony Police Department spotted the car, and they noticed the taillights were out. The teen was pulled over, and he reportedly told the officer he smoked marijuana.
The officer took him home, and the following day, the boy told his parents what happened when he went to the woman’s house. They called the authorities to report the situation.
The woman was taken into custody and booked into the Madison County Jail. According to reports, she is being charged with two counts of felony rape of a victim who is 16 or 17 years of age, felony delivery of a controlled substance, and misdemeanor dispensing alcohol to a minor. She could be given a life sentence if she is convicted.
She was incarcerated on a $500,000 bond, and if she is released, the woman is not allowed to have any contact with the alleged victim.
