Teen claims affair with substitute teacher in Chesterfield


A Chesterfield substitute teacher and a former teenage high school student are at the center of a controversy. The teen claims he had an affair with the teacher.

The former Cosby High student, who is now an 18-year-old college student, used social media to post what he says are nude photos of a substitute teacher at Cosby High School.

He claims he had sex with the 24-year-old English teacher in April while he was a high school senior.

The teen also tweeted text messages that he claims took place between the two.

News of the alleged relationship is a hot topic on social media and the halls of Cosby High School.

"It's a lot of drama for a high school student to come to school and hear about their teacher doing things like this," said one student.

Several students say they know the teacher and former high school student at the center of the controversy.

"A lot of kids are talking about it at school (Nicole: what are they saying?) Everything. You don't know what's rumor or true."

"She's a teacher - she should be an authority figure for students - they should be looking up to her."

Chesterfield Police confirm they are investigating the allegations, but so far, that teacher hasn't been charged with anything.

Right now, it's unclear if the former student was 18 when the alleged sexual encounters took place.

Wednesday morning, Chesterfield Schools released a statement that reads in part:

"On October 12, Chesterfield Schools was made aware of an allegation. Police were immediately contacted. A school investigation was conducted and the substitute teacher is no longer employed as of the end of the same school day. "

We do know the identities of the former student and former substitute teacher - but opted not to reveal them since no charges have been filed.

Right now, it's unclear why the former student decided to reveal the alleged affair now.
