An English teacher and self-described ‘Jesus follower’ reportedly had sex with one of her underage students, police say.
Baylee Turner, 23, was arrested last Wednesday in Carthage, Missouri and charged with sexual contact with a student by a school district employee.
Police say Turner had sex with the unidentified student between January 14 and January 21 in a home in Carthage, although authorities did not specify whose home it was, or the gender of the student she is accused of abusing.
