A Charleston S.C High School teacher and tennis coach was arrested Monday on a charge that she had a sexual relationship with a student, police said.
Jennifer Olajire-Aro, 27, of Johns Island faces a count of sexual battery with a student, a spokesman from the Charleston S.C. Police Department said. The felony charge carries up to five years in prison.
Olajire-Aro is set to appear for a bond hearing Tuesday.
The 17-year-old student told Burke High officials about the months-long relationship, the police said.
“The incidents occurred off campus,” spokesman Charles Francis said. No details were immediately available.
A Charleston County School District spokesman declined to comment on the case or on Olajire-Aro’s employment status with the district.
A directory on the school’s website lists Jennifer Aro but contains no further information.
