Have you been arrested for allegedly having an improper relationship with a student?
It should come as no surprise that the number of teachers accused of the felony offense of improper relationship between educator and student has increased with the wide variety of social media platforms available for student-teacher communication. A teacher sending sexually explicit messages to a student enrolled in any school within the same district could find themselves in the crosshairs of a criminal prosecution. A teacher can also be charged if there is an accusation by a student, regardless of age or consent, if the student claims there was sexual contact, sexual intercourse, or deviate sexual intercourse.
