ST. JOSEPH, Mich. (AP) — A former high school teacher in southwestern Michigan faces criminal sexual conduct charges following an investigation into reports of an inappropriate relationship with a student.
The St. Joseph Public Safety Department says Monday that the 26-year-old woman has been arrested and jailed.
The case has been turned over to the Berrien County prosecutor’s office.
St. Joseph Public Schools contacted authorities on April 29 after the parents of a student reported the relationship involving the teacher.
Schools Superintendent Ann Cardon said the teacher was placed on paid administrative leave. She says the teacher resigned on Friday.
