Garinger High School teacher, Emma Neil Ogle of Huntersville, North Carolina arrested after the 63 year old female educator has sex with a 17 year old male student.
A 63-year-old high school teacher in North Carolina has been accused of having had sex with a male student, 43 years her junior.
Emma Neil Ogle, of Huntersville, was arrested late Thursday after her 17 year old victim reported the pair being intimately intimately over the summer WSOC reports.
Police arrested the veteran teacher at Garinger High School in Charlotte several hours after the victim telling school staffers about the allegations.
Ogle a career and technical health occupations teacher at the school since 2014 and a district employee since 2005 is now facing charges for a sex act with a student, indecent liberties with a student and crimes against nature.
‘It’s just disgusting. It’s shocking and disgusting.’
School officials responding to the female educator’s arrest said there was no indication that the alleged sex acts took place on school grounds, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools told WCNC.
‘I recognized her,’ one senior at the school, Edward Ramon said. ‘It’s just disgusting. It’s shocking and disgusting.’
The allegations will likely tarnish the school’s reputation, Ramon said.
‘It just makes the school look bad,’ he continued. ‘I think she should go to prison for that.’
‘I was in a state of shock. I really was because my child goes here and I’ve had two others come out of here,’ parent Tychovia Whitmire said.
‘I have been here a total of six years with my kids going in and out of this school, and I definitely want it to be safe,’ Whitmire reiterated.
Ogle has since been suspended with pay following her arrest
Ogle, whose bond was set at $10,000, was released from custody on Friday, jail records show.
Not immediately clear is what led to the female educator abusing her position of trust, authority and power and subjugate her male victim.
