A Florida teacher was arrested Thursday after she was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old female student.
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office charged Jaclyn Truman, 30, with lewd and lascivious acts on a minor between 12-16 years of age, while she was a substitute teacher at Hagerty High School.
Earlier this month, the victim disclosed to police that she and Truman were involved in a sexual relationship last year.
Jaclyn Truman, 30, was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious acts on a minor between 12-16 years of age for allegedly having sex inside a Florida high school with a female student last year
The victim told authorities that she and Truman had sexual contact 5-10 times from March to May 2016 at the school.
Truman recently worked as a sign language teacher at Lake Howell High School. But at the time of the alleged acts, she was working as a substitute teacher at Hagerty High School.
On Thursday, Truman resigned from her position at the school and turned herself in to police the same day, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Police conducted a recorded interview with Truman who is cooperating with the investigation.
Based on that interview and the victim’s statement, Truman was booked in to the John E. Polk Correctional facility on two counts of lewd acts on a minor. Her bond was set at $40,000.
Investigators said they are looking into the possibility that there may be other victims.

According to the Sentinel, Truman started working for Seminole County Public Schools in 2005 as an instructional assistant at Lyman High School.
In 2008, she became a teacher at Lyman, where she worked until 2013. Two years ago, Truman returned to the district as a substitute teacher.
Michael Lawrence, the Seminole County Public Schools spokesman said the school district performed a background check on her before hiring her as a full-time teacher.
He said Truman had a clean record and no reports of prior incidents.
