Fort Worth, TX (The Weekly Vice) - Cristina McCann, a 39-year-old teacher at Lake Travis High School in Austin, Texas was jailed Monday after she allegedly engaged in a sexual relationship with a student.
According to police, McCann engaged in a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student while the two were attending a DECA club competition back in February.
Investigators say McCann was supervising a group of six students who were representing Lake Travis High School in the competition when the alleged sexual encounter took place.
DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) is an organization that seeks to prepare students to become leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management, according to the organization's website.
An investigation was initially launched on allegations that McCann bought alcohol for the students during the trip. During that investigation details emerged of a sexual relationship that occurred between McCann and one of the students attending the event.
Detectives believe McCann was drinking alcohol with the students when one of them returned to her hotel room and a sexual encounter took place.
She resigned her position with the school in May and a warrant was issued for her arrest on June 3rd.
McCann turned herself in on Monday and was booked into jail on a charge of improper relationship between educator and student. Bail was set at $10,000.
