Another day, another student-teacher sex scandal allegation?
In what seems to be only the latest in a slew of recent student-teacher sex scandal allegations, 27 -year-old Amanda Rowles, a former Colorado choir and drama teacher at Calhan High School, has been accused of having an affair with two 15- year-old high school students.
According to theDaily Mail Online, police began investigating after receiving a tip-off about the affairs, which led them to the pair of now 17 -year-old male high school students.
One student reported to police that the pair had engaged in sexual relations “on at least 40 occasions” over a six-month period of time beginning in December, 2011.
“He said they would either go on hikes or go to her mother’s residence when her mother was not home,” the first student alleged, according to the arrest affidavit.
The other student reported to investigators that the pair had kissed in a classroom after school sometime in the spring of 2011.
“He kissed her on the lips and she kissed him back, but she did eventually push him away and told him it was wrong for them to do that,” the affidavit said.
The second student claims to have pursued a relationship with Rowles, who consented to a sexual relationship with the boy, who was under 15 at the time, according to CBS Denver. (Both students were reported to be under the age of 15 during the time of their alleged sexual assaults.)
Rowles is said to have eventually ended the relationship in May of 2011, which the student told police, “…hurt.”
Rowles was arrested last Thursday, December 19, 2012 on suspicion of two counts of sexual assault by a person in a position of trust and booked at the Aurora County Jail in Colorado. She was later released from jail after posting $50,000 bail.
