Iowa teacher charged with having sex with high school student

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 27-year-old high school teacher from Ankeny is facing charges after police learned she was having a sexual relationship with a former student.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/29BozBC ) Amanda Dreier has been charged with sexual exploitation by a school employee.

Even though the former student is 18, state law prohibits sexual relationships between teachers and students.

Dreier resigned from her teaching job at Ankeny High School last month after the investigation began.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Dreier who could comment on the case. She has posted a $5,000 bond.

Officers discovered Dreier and the teen in the back of a parked car while investigating an unrelated incident. They discovered Dreier was a teacher and the teen a recent graduate after looking them up on Facebook.
