Teacher, 22, ‘had sex with pupil multiple times and sent him nude photos’

A teacher has been arrested after she allegedly had sex with a pupil multiple times, South Carolina police have said.

Anna Elizabeth Patton, 22, was charged on Monday following allegations that she had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student.

Darlington County Sheriff’s Office police records claimed she had sex with the pupil multiple times between October 1, 2019, through to January 11, this year.

The documents also said Patton had sent a flurry of explicit messages to the teen during this period.

Using different social media accounts, the teacher allegedly sent explicit texts and nude photos to the pupil.

Officers said the arrest was made after the pupil made a statement and messages sent between her and teen were examined.

Darlington County School District officials said Patton has since been “placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation”.
