A Newport News, Va., high school teacher is accused of having a yearlong sexual relationship with a student.
Police arrested Cara Alexander,
a 27-year-old English teacher at Woodside High School, last Friday
following an investigation into allegations made by the parents of a
17-year-old student. According to ABC local affiliate WVEC, the boy's
parents told police that they found nude photos of the teacher on their son's phone last Tuesday.
According to court documents obtained by North Carolina CBS affiliate
WTKR, the student in question told police that he had had sex with the
teacher more than 20 times since last summer. The documents state that Alexander initiated contact with the student by giving him her cell phone number.
Students at the school told the station they were surprised that
Alexander, whom they described as "calm" and "friendly," would be
involved in such allegations.
"She never like, presented herself like she would do that,” senior Terrence Nabrict told WTKR.
