Iowa teacher Ashley Anderson is accused of engaging in sexual acts with four male students at Aplington-Parkersburg High School. The math teacher has reportedly admitted to having oral sex with two students, sex with another, and sending nude photos of herself to a fourth. Four felony charges of sexual misconduct were levied against the educator.
The 24-year-old teacher allegedly initiated a sexual relationship with students between the ages of 16 and 18, the Indianapolis Star reports. When reportedly admitting that she sent nude photos of herself to a fourth student, Anderson also stated she kissed the boy.
Ashley resigned from her position at Aplington-Parkersburg High School. She was released from Butler County Jail after posting a $5,000 bond, according to the Huffington Post. In addition to her primary position at the Iowa high school, she was also a faculty adviser for the Students Against Drunk Driving group, the prom committee adviser, and the assistant girls’ track coach.
An excerpt from the criminal complaint against the Iowa teacher reads:
“The relationship began with kissing, and soon after progressed to Anderson performing oral sex … on two separate occasions.”
The educator allegedly had sex at a student’s home in May and texted the teenager naked photos of herself. The fourth student, a 17-year-old boy, allegedly engaged in a kiss with the teacher on a country road after track practice earlier this spring.
The criminal complaint against Ashley Anderson also states that one of the students the teacher admitted to giving oral sex to was a junior who was on the prom committee. The other boy who reportedly received oral sex from the teacher was a sophomore in her math classes.
