(Las Vegas, Nevada) A 24-year-old English teacher at Foothill High School, Amanda Brennan, has been accused of pursuing a romantic relationship with a 15-year-old male student.
Brennan faces counts of luring a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
School District investigators interviewed Brennan on Friday; she was “cooperative” and she admitted to taking the teenager out and communicating with him outside of normal teacher-student relations, said Clark County School District Police Sgt. Mitch Maciszak.Details on booking are not available.
Brennan was then arrested.
Maciszak said the delinquency count pertained to Brennan keeping the teenager out past curfew, and the two luring counts are related to the teacher allegedly going out at night with the student without his parents’ permission.
