A 35 year-old special education teacher has been arrested for having sex with a 14 year-old boy.
Shauna Sims was arrested at her workplace, Parks Junior High School, at 11 a.m. on Thursday morning.
The married teacher has been charged with lewd acts with the minor, who was reportedly not a student at her school. Their sexual encounters took place off campus, but police are currently investigating whether Sims had victims at her own school.
Sims has been released on $50,000 bail, but the Fullerton, California school district has since placed her on administrative leave.
“With this unfortunate situation, Fullerton School District is committed to answering any and all concerns within the community,” read a statement from the school.
“Student safety is the primary concern of the District,” the press release continued. “The Fullerton School District will continue to do everyting [sic] within its power to ensure its community: students, parents, faculty, and staff, have the resources necessary to uphold a higher standard. Nothing less is acceptable.”
