Chrystal Vega Dardanelle Middle, Arkansas school teacher arrested after admitting to crossing the line with a teen male student, following physical relationship. 

Also joining the ranks of female teachers who sexually prey on their students is married eight grade Arkansas teacher, Chrystal Compton Vega.

River Valley Now reported the 40 year old mother of two arrested on Monday and charged with first degree sexual assault, a class A felony.

The educator’s arrest comes after Vega admitting to cops that she had a ‘texting relationship’ with a 16 year old male student- with some of ‘the texts crossing the line.’

An investigation was launched against the arts teacher who’d previously taught at Dardanelle Middle School after her teen victim coming forward in September and claiming having sex with Vega in a park.

A regard of Dardanelle Public Schools website revealed the educator no longer being listed.

Surveillance footage showed Vega’s car arriving and leaving Old Post Park in Russellville during the same time frame that the 16-year-old reported to police.

The teacher admitted to investigators that she met with the teen at the park, but denied that they had sex, according to River Valley Now

The mother, who has two sons, has been accused of having a sexual relationship with a student from Dardanelle High School – which is in the same district. Of note, Vega separated/divorced from her husband in 2016 after marrying in 2003.

Vega turned herself into police on Monday after a bench warrant was issued for her arrest on Friday.

Vega was released from the Pope County Detention Center after posting $7,500 bond. She could be sentenced anywhere from six to 30 years in prison and face a $15,000 fine if convicted.

She is next scheduled to appear in court on December 10 for a plea arraignment hearing.  

Not immediately clear is what led to the female teacher abusing her position of power, authority and trust and subjugating her male victim.
