NEW YORK: A 24-year-old American teacher has been arrested after she claimed she had sex with her students.
Meredith Claire Powell, who teaches math at Lincoln High School in Tacoma in Washington state, was arrested on Thursday after a tip-off about her sexual activities with young students.
She has been booked for child rape and communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. At least three students have been her victim.
A district school board spokesman said they received a tip about the woman teacher’s sexual activity with students at Lincoln High School and alerted police who arrested Powell.
Powell, who joined the school in 2012, will be formally charge with two counts of child rape and one count of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.
