Michelle Ward Farley's Jail Intake Booking
Boise, Idaho (The Weekly Vice) -- Michelle Farley, a 40-year-old psychology teacher at Borah High School in Boise, Idaho has been arrested on sexual battery charges involving a 17-year-old male student.
According to Borah police, Farley allegedly had sex with a student on multiple occasions between May and October of this year.
Authorities say Farley, who is married with two children, admitted to having sexual relations with the student during her interview with detectives. Investigators say the teen involved also confirmed the allegations.
Prosecutors told a judge on Friday that the case is considered "ongoing" and that investigators are looking into additional allegations involving the teacher.
Farley was charged with sexual battery of a child aged 16 or 17. She was taken into custody Thursday evening and booked into the Ada County Jail.
She was arraigned by video on Friday, where bond was set at 10,000. Since the judge ordered her to not have contact with minors besides her own two children, she won't be returning to the classroom while the case is pending.
Her preliminary hearing is set for Jan 9th.
