EUFAULA, Ala. (AP) — A teacher’s assistant at an Alabama high school is facing charges for allegedly having sex with a student. 

Al.com reports 44-year-old Amy S. Priest, of Eufaula, was charged Monday with two counts of a school employee engaging in sex with a student under 19 years old. It was unknown if Priest is represented by an attorney who could speak on her behalf.

Police Chief Steve Watkins said Tuesday the alleged incidents did not occur at Eufaula High School, where Priest worked as a paraprofessional. The school system said it was notified of the allegations and the employee has been placed on administrative leave with pay until an investigation is completed.
