Jessica Greene North Carolina high school teacher arrested: What led to a Davie County High school educator sexually preying on a student?
Jessica Greene a 27 year old, Mocksville, North Carolina high school teacher has been arrested after allegedly having sex with a male student on and off campus.
Upon her arrest Tuesday night, the Davie County High School teacher according to a report via WGHP My Fox 8 was charged with three counts of sexual activity with a student.
Jessica Welch Greene‘s arrest comes after school officials notified authorities on December 2 that the woman may have been involved in an inappropriate relationship with a student, the Davie County Sheriff’s Office said.
Upon her arrest, Greene was booked at the Davie County Detention Center under a $15,000 bond.
The Davie County School System first learned about Greene’s alleged student-teacher relationship on Dec. 1. She was suspended the following day as the school district and the sheriff’s office launched a joint investigation, school officials said notes the nydailynews.
How school officials came to be ‘tipped off’ about the inappropriate trysts remain unclear.
Subsequent investigations led to officials finding out that the teacher had sex with a male student – who was not identified – on and off campus between Nov. 1 and the first week of December, Chief Deputy J.D. Hartman said.
‘The safety of all of our students continues to be a top priority and we will continue to partner with parents, our community, and law enforcement to maintain a safe teaching and learning environment for the students we serve,’ school officials said in a statement.
Parents of the high students were notified Tuesday evening about the incident through the school’s messenger, the school system said.
Jessica Greene has since been suspended without pay and was released from jail upon making bond.
The woman’s arrest follows a spate of female teacher’s sexually assaulting male students in their charge, assaults that are often predicated on teacher’s abusing their position of authority and trust and usurping their power over their victim.
