Merced, CA (The Weekly Vice) - Melody Carter-McCabe, a 27-year-old agriculture teacher at Livingston High School, has been jailed after she allegedly had a year-long sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student.
According to the Merced County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched in March of this year after rumors began circulating around the school of an alleged sexual relationship between Carter-McCabe and a student who was 15-years-old when the alleged relationship began.
Investigators say the relationship began in September, 2010 and lasted until August, 2011. The pair reportedly became close when Carter-McCabe began mentoring the student through Future Farmers of America (FFA).
The student told investigators that he was a regular visitor at the teacher's home and that he and his teacher engaged in sex more than 50 times during the relationship.
The pair reportedly exchange a large number of photographs and messages during the course of the relationship - items that are now in the hands of prosecutors in the case.
The alleged victim told detectives that he began hanging out at the teacher's home, helping with yard work. During one of his visits, he admitted to leaning over and kissing the teacher as the two worked in her yard. Two weeks later, the couple began to have sex on a regular basis.
The relationship reportedly ended in 2011 when the couple decided that their age difference would make it impossible to be together until he was older.
During questioning, the student told detectives that Carter-McCabe had a purple vibrator that he allowed him to use on her. Detectives found the vibrator in a nightstand at the teacher's home. The student also showed photographs of a woman in her panties on his cell phone that he stated belonged to Carter-McCabe.
Carter-McCabe was booked into jail and charged with nine felony counts of unlawful sex with a minor. Her bail was set at $250,000.
