ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A teacher at Annapolis High School has been arrested after having alleged sexual contact with a 17-year-old student.

Jennifer Arnold, 43, faces third and fourth degree sex offense charges involving a person in the position of authority.

Anne Arundel County Police were initially made aware of the incident on July 6.

The student who now lives out-of-state disclosed the encounters during an interview with detectives. None of the incidents are believed to have occurred on school property.

Arnold was also interviewed and ultimately arrested on October 1. She's currently banned from the school.

“No one who is charged with something like this should be in front of students in our schools," Anne Arundel County Schools Spokesman Bob Mosier said in a statement. "Our school system removed this teacher from any contact with students immediately upon learning of these allegations, and we have and will continue to work with the authorities as this case moves forward.”

Anyone with more information should call police at 410-222-4733.
