A married Mississippi couple who both teach high school softball are accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old female student.
Michael Porter, 27, and his wife Blair Porter, 26, were arrested and charged with sexual battery of a child on Friday.
The Porters allegedly had oral sex with the teen at their home and in a press box at Ridgeland High School, where they both worked.
The teen’s mother learned that the couple was in touch with the girl in a way that “went well beyond that of a teacher student relationship,” a police document said.
The woman reported her concerns to police, who searched text messages between the student at the couple. Investigators say they found both nude photographs and sexual language in the texts, the New York Daily News reported.
When confronted with the evidence, the teen confessed to having sex with the couple, police said.
The couple faces up to 30 years each if convicted.
Michael was released on $25,000 bail and his wife was let go on $5,000 bond.
Both have since been fired by the school district.
