Biology teacher arrested for having sex with students
24-year-old teacher, Marquita Alston, in Tennessee has been arrested for allegedly seducing and having sex with five of her students.
Alston was said to have had sexual contact with five boys while a teacher at Pearl Cohn High School in Nashville.
The teacher, according to Metro UK, allegedly had the act with the students between September and November 2014.
Following a report the school principal had received about the teacher, the matter was reported to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department’s Sex Crimes, who started carrying out investigation since November 2014.
Police say some of the contacts may have occurred on the Pearl Cohn campus.
Since then, more and more alleged victims have stepped forward with evidence.
Alston has now been charged with five counts of statutory rape and is now free on a $1,000 (£760) bond.
The teacher resigned a month later after being placed on administrative leave by the school system when the investigation started, Metro Uk reported.
