Teacher Suspected Of Having Sex With Student

  An investigation is ongoing into allegations an East Texas teacher's aide had sexual relations with a student. The 38-year-old aide worked at Athens High School. The student is 16-years-old. Athens Police so far interviewed the student who confirmed the allegations. Police believe the alleged misconduct happened earlier this year. But, they say, there is good reason why charges have not been filed against the teacher's aide.

  "One thing that we want to make sure that we do not do is damage anybody's character or jeopardize anybody's future by just rushing in with warrants and stuff like that. I, and our administration, had felt like it was best to send it to our district attorney and let our D.A. review what we had," says Sergeant Charles Gurley with the Athens Police Department.

  We contacted the D.A.'s office which refused to comment on the investigation. The teacher's aide has reportedly been suspended from the school.
