Teacher accused of ‘ongoing sexual relationship’ with underage student
A League City, Texas teacher resigned last month after her ongoing affair with a student came to the attention of authorities.
Investigators say Stephanie Forbes, 40, is accused of having a relationship with a “child 16 years old or younger” who is a student at the high school where she taught.
KHOU reported that Forbes had taught in the Clear Creek Independent School District for 10 years, most recently at Clear Creek High School.
Galveston County Sheriff’s Office deputies posted at the high school began an investigation into Forbes in December after receiving a tip that she had been involved in an ongoing sexual relationship with a student, according to KPRC.
Forbes was arrested Thursday, but is out of jail on condition that she stays away from children when no other adults are present. She faces charges of sexual assault of a child and improper relationship between educator and student.
This is the latest teacher sex scandal to hit Texas.
