CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A former Cedar Rapids Washington High School chemistry teacher is accused of having sex with a student.

Cedar Rapids police arrested 41-year old Heather Adams at around 6:20 p.m. Thursday.  She is charged with sexual exploitation by a school employee.

Sergeant Cristy Hamblin says officers were called to the 300 block of 28th Street Drive SE on Sunday for a suspicious vehicle.  When they arrived, officers found Adams in the car with an 18-year old student.  Hamblin says the officers determined that the two had sex.

Hamblin also says that Adams resigned her job at the school on Monday for personal reasons.

If convicted, Adams could spend up to 10 years on the sex offender registry.
