New Mexico Teacher Accused of Rape
accused of multiple child abuse and sexual penetration charges.
State police say Baker had sex at least six times with a 17-year-old student at Belen HS, and that the encounters often took place at her house.Last Friday, Baker was arrested.
Investigators have also said she sent him nude photos from time to time, and that the encounters all took place from November to December 2014.
But Jennifer Brown, the district's HR director, said school administrators didn't find out about the situation until Thursday, when Baker first came to them.
She allegedly told administrators "she was being harassed by a student."
Brown said the school interviewed that student before putting Baker on paid leave.
