UK: A female school teacher has been charged after allegedly having sex with one of her teenage students in her home.
Married Lauren Mitchell, who teaches at Dr Lena Edwards Academic Charter School in Jersey City, New Jersey, engaged in “inappropriate sexual activity” with a 15-year-old according to police.
The 32-year-old and the student are alleged to have performed a sex act on each other, with Mitchell being charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.
