Waterboro, Maine (The Weekly Vice) - Jessica Pomerleau, a 36-year-old special education teacher at Massabesic High School was jailed after she allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old student.
According to the York County Sheriffs Office, an investigation was launched about two weeks ago after the mother of another child contacted a school district resource officer and reported that she had information about a teacher who had engaged in a sexual relationship with a student.
Investigators say Pomerleau engaged in a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student last year and that the relationship may have continued into the summer months.
Authorities also say Pomerleau provided marijuana to the minor during the alleged relationship. South Portland police are assisting in the case since one of the alleged incidents reportedly occurred in South Portland.
Detectives with the Sheriff's Office searched Pomerleau's home last week and submitted several items to the Maine State Police laboratory for analysis. The results of those findings have not yet been made public.
Pomerleau was booked into the York County Jail on charges of gross sexual assault and aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs, both felonies. She was released Tuesday night after posting a $10,000 cash bail.
