Oklahoma teaching assistant arrested for sex with student two weeks after starting work at school
A 22-year-old Oklahoma teacher’s assistant was reportedly arrested for having sex with a student after it was revealed she had started a relationship with the teen after just two weeks on the job.
Ashley Waffle, a temporary teacher’s assistant at Granite Public Schools, began her employment Oct. 10 and began communicating with a 16-year-old on Snapchat on Oct. 25, KSWO reported.
The outlet said school officials alerted police to alleged links between the student and Waffle, which were spreading in the small town of fewer than 2,000 people.
According to court documents, Waffle twice had affairs with the teenager at her home shortly before Nov. 9, KSWO reported.
Waffle was fired on November 10 and now faces two counts of second-degree rape that could see her jailed for up to 15 years.
According to the outlet, she is currently being held in the Greer County Jail.
District Superintendent Missy Berry wrote to the parents this week telling the parents that they are working with law enforcement as their investigation continues.
