WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. (WKMG) - West Melbourne police have arrested a female science teacher at a charter school after they say she had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student.
Irene Khan, 32, was arrested on Wednesday after a two-month investigation into a possible sexual relationship with one of her students at the Imagine School in West Melbourne during the 2011-2012 school year.
The victim told police Khan engaged in sexual activity with him several times, including her car, her apartment and several hotels and motels in the area.
"We brought the victim in and questioned him and corroborated much of his story, the sexual battery occurred several times," said Commander Steve Wilkinson of the West Melbourne Police Department. "The victim had a cellphone his mother took it away from him and the suspect bought him a telephone and gave it to him."
Police obtained cellphone records from the two that showed text messages where they wrote to each other, "I love you." Khan also wrote to the victim wanting a kiss, police said.
Khan's charges include enticing the victim to engage in sexual activity, committing sexual battery while in authority as an agent of the government, lewd or lascivious battery by engaging in sexual activity and lewd or lascivious molestation.
Khan was taken to Brevard County Jail, where she is being held on $80,000 bond. She will have her first appearance with a judge on Thursday morning.
According to the Imagine Schools website, Imagine Schools is a full-service operator of public charter schools, which mean they are publicly funded and privately operated. There are 75 schools in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
