A 63-year-old North Carolina high school was arrested this week and charged with having sex with a 17-year-old student.
Emma Neil Ogle, a teacher a Garinger High School, was arrested Halloween evening after the alleged victim reported her conduct to a staff member earlier in the day, WSOC reported.
Ogle was booked on criminal charges, which include committing a crime against nature with a student, engaging in a sex act with a student and felony indecent liberties with a student, according to Mecklenberg County Sheriff’s Office records.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools officials said Ogle is suspended without pay pending the results of an investigation, according to WSOC.
The relationship with the 17-year-old student allegedly began in spring and turned sexual in Summer, WSOC reported.
Parents expressed dismay over the allegations in interviews with local media.
“I was in a state of shock. I really was because my child goes here and I’ve had two others come out of here,” one parent told WSOC.
Ogle was released from jail Friday morning, ABC affiliate WHDH reported.
