Henderson, Nevada (The Weekly Vice) - Amanda Brennan, a 24-year-old English teacher at Foothill High School, was jailed Friday after she allegedly engaged in an inappropriate relationship with an underage student.
According to police, an investigation was launched after the parents of a 15-year-old student contacted a school resource officer and reported that Brennan was pursuing an inappropriate relationship with their son.
The boy's parents were further aggravated when Brennan picked the student up from their home and took him to the movies against their wishes. She also reportedly brought the boy back home after his scheduled curfew.
When investigators interviewed the student, he told them that he and Brennan loved each other and had kissed and cuddled in the backseat of her car.
Detectives also discovered that Brennan and the boy had exchanged more than 1,000 text messages over a 9 day period.
Brennan reportedly admitted to taking the student out and communicating with him outside of school. She went on to say that she knew the relationship was wrong, but loved the student and did it anyway. She was immediately placed under arrest.
She was booked into the Clark County Detention Center and charged with two counts of luring a child and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Her bail has been set at $20,000.
