Courtney Speer, married Arkansas teacher, busted having sex with student in parking lot
An Arkansas teacher has been accused of having sex with a 17-year-old student in her school parking lot.
Courtney Speer, age 31, is a Bryant High School English teacher and has been instigating an illicit relationship with the student and now faces four counts of sexual assault.
Speer has resigned on Monday after police began investigating the allegations and turned herself into the authorities.
Police said the 17-year-old victim said his first sexual encounter was with Speer in the high school parking lot in her car in June.
He told investigators they had a total of four encounters, including one occasion at her home.
Sgt Todd Crowson said: “He told them of four occasions, four encounters he had with her at the Bryant parking lot, high school parking lot in her car. She was actually scheduled to come in and speak with the investigators today. She did retain an attorney and the attorney did contact the investigators and advise them that he would have her there first thing in the morning to turn herself in.”
This felony carries a sentence of six to thirty years in jail.
