Silver Spring TWP, Pa. (The Weekly Vice) - Emily Nesbit, a 31-year-old English teacher at Cumberland Valley High School, has been jailed after she allegedly had sex with a student.
According to police, an investigation was launched last week after a female student noticed text messages of a sexual nature between Nesbit and an 18-year-old male student on the student's mobile phone.
During interviews with Nesbit and the student, it was learned that a relationship developed when the pair began text messaging sexually explicit material to one another which included nude or partially nude photographs. The relationship reportedly began in early February and continued until March 10.
Investigators say Nesbit and the student began meeting in her classroom a "couple of times per week" where Nesbit allegedly engaged in a sexual act with the student. Both Nesbit and the student have admitted to engaging in sexual acts.
Although the student is of legal age to consent to a sexual relationship, an amendment went into effect in February 2012 which prohibits teachers and persons placed in a position of trust from engaging in sexual acts with students regardless of the student's age.
Nesbit was removed from the classroom after school administrators learned of the allegations and Nesbit resigned her teaching position on Wednesday. She then surrendered herself to authorities and waved her right to a preliminary hearing.
Nesbit was booked into jail and charged with institutional sexual assault. She was released after posting $100,000 bond.
