A North Carolina teacher reportedly fled town when she learned on social media that she was charged for having sex with a student, according to officials.
Kayla Sprinkles, 26, was indicted by a grand jury on sexual assault charges June 4 after allegations surfaced that she was sexually involved with a student in the Cherokee County schools system, news station WPVI reported.
The Andrews High School teacher’s relationship with the student allegedly occurred from December 2016 to April 2017, according to the Clay County Progress.
Sprinkles fled the county after news of the indictment hit social media, authorities said. She ultimately turned herself in June 7 to the Mecklenburg County Detention Center, where she was released on $25,000 bond.
She is set to appear next in Cherokee County Superior Court on July 2.
