Suspicion was raised even further, however, when Scherwitz allegedly left the party with a 16-year-old student.

"The relationship started with text messaging, which led to explicit text messaging, which led to the relationship," said Garivey.
Scherwitz reportedly resigned her position with the school on April 22nd when she learned that she was under investigation for the alleged relationship. Although Scherwitz is married she is currently separated from her husband, according to reports.
Scherwitz was booked into the Freeport Jail and charged with sexual assault of a child and improper relationship between educator and student. She was released after posting $50,000 bond.
