A North Carolina private school teacher is facing 12 counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, Wake County officials said on Friday.
Paula Louise Stinson, 30, was arrested at Thales Academy in Rolesville, N.C. on Friday. She is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 14-year-old student and has been fired by the academy, according to WNCN in Raleigh.
“During the investigation, it was also discovered that the suspect and student had engaged in inappropriate interactions at the school and boy’s home over a two-week period,” according to a news release from Wake County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Eric Curry.
The victim’s parents discovered a history of text messages from Stinson after intercepting his phone, prompting authorities to be involved.
The charge of indecent liberties with a child is a Class F felony. A serious charge in North Carolina that can lead to a possible jail sentence, probation, house arrest, or GPS location monitoring.
Stinson has been released on a $75,000 bond.
