A high school teacher in Alabama was arrested and charged with having sex with two different students, according to reports.
Ashley Hall, a 33-year-old English teacher at Opp High School, was arrested on Friday after police received a tip the day before about Hall engaging in sexual intercourse with a student.
One of the students reportedly confided in another teacher, who then contacted Opp City Schools Superintendent Michael Smithart. Smithart subsequently notified police, who began an investigation.
“Once we turned it over to the police, our focus became what was best for the students,” he said. “The students are of utmost importance and our focus is on them and making sure they have what they need. Our high school is still about math and science and history and that is what we're doing today and will continue to do."
Hall was charged with two counts of a school employee engaging in a sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student under the age of 19. Bond was set at $700,000 – $350,000 for each charge – which she posted before being released. She is now on paid administrative leave while an investigation is underway.
