A teacher at Central High Freshman Academy in Phenix City is accused of having sex with a student. The teacher was arrested on Wednesday and charged with school employee engaging in a sexual act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student under the age of 19.

According to reports, it appears that the school may have known about the incident as early as February. There is information that the employee had been warned to stay away from the student sometime in February, but that information was not made known to law enforcement until March.

School administrators are instructed under Alabama law to report any possible child abuse or undesirable relationships between students and teachers to law enforcement immediately.
