Az. teacher caught in sex act with teenager www.privateofficer.com
STANFIELD, AZ July 3 2010- Authorities say a Stanfield teacher was arrested Wednesday night for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old former student.
According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, 26-year-old Andrea Martinez was expected to be booked into jail Thursday afternoon, and charged with child molestation and sexual conduct with a minor.
Authorities say the two were caught around 10:40 p.m. when a white SUV pulled off the roadway near where officers from the Gila River Police Department were working as part of a multi-agency detail.
Using night vision goggles from a distance, officers saw two individuals appearing to be having consensual sexual intercourse, officials say.
Before officers could contact the people in the vehicle, the male and female reportedly got out of the vehicle and began to argue.
Officers later learned the male subject was only 14 years old and the female was identified as Martinez. Authorities say Martinez is a school teacher with the Stanfield Elementary School District and a former teacher of the victim.
Authorities say both admitted to having sexual intercourse with each other before being contacted by officers. The teen reportedly also told officers that he had sexual intercourse last month with Martinez.
The school district was notified of the arrested and is cooperating with the investigation, according to authorities.
