A 39-year-old female teacher identified as Krystal Jackson has been arrested for allegedly raping one of her students after meeting with him.
The teacher who works at a school in California, US and was arrested on Friday, September 4, under suspicion of four counts of rape, oral copulation with a child, lewd acts with a child, communicating with a child to commit a felony, and meeting with a child for lewd purposes.
Police say they believe the teacher’s 14-year-old victim is safe but fear he might not be the only one targeted by Jackson, KSEE reported.
Fresno County Sheriff Lt. Brandon Pursell said: “Mrs. Jackson is in custody tonight.

“We believe that our victim is safe, which we are grateful for, but we don’t know if there are other victims.”
The authorities launched an investigation into the teacher’s alleged sexual assault following a tip-off to the sheriff’s office.
According to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office, the alleged crimes took place over the past year.
During that time, Jackson was leading one-on-one independent study sessions.
Lt. Pursell added: “The worst part of this is that our victim was abused, that is number one. But also the fact that our suspect is in a position of trust.”
Jackson had worked for several other school districts in the area, according to Fox News.
