A former North Carolina high school social studies teacher is accused of having a sexual relationship with her 16-year-old student.
The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office arrested Kayla Sprinkles, 26, on June 7 on multiple sexual assault charges for allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a student, WTVD reported.
Authorities began investigating the former Andrews High School social studies teacher in March after someone tipped them off about the alleged inappropriate relationship, which took place from December 2016 to April 2017.
“Due to the nature of the crime and the age of the victim no further information will be released concerning this incident,” the Cherokee County Sheriff said in a statement.
A teacher found guilty of having sex with four male students received no jail time but had to register as a sex offender and serve 42 months on probation.
