Pennsylvania Teacher and Student, 17

(Bethel, Pennsylvania) A 22-year-old teacher formerly at North Pitt High School, Sarah Holmes, has been accused of engaging in an indecent relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Holmes faces one count of felony indecent liberties.
Investigator Dolenti said age difference was not he key factor in the case.

"The age difference wasn't really the issue, it was just that student teacher relationship. The general statute states that as long as she is a active student at the school and he is an active student, any further relationship is inappropriate," Dolenti said.

A Pitt County Spokesperson said that state Board of Education was notified of the allegations against Holmes in November. If Holmes is found guilty of the charge she could lose her state teachers license.
Holmes was booked into custody and released on $5,000 bond.
