Aimee Chevalier, 40, was arrested on August 8 for engaging in ‘sexual activities’ with the boy whose age has not been revealed
A cafeteria worker at a Christian Academy in Florida has been arrested for having a ‘sexual’ relationship with an teenage boy.
Aimee Chevalier, 40, admitted to her illicit relationship with the boy when questioned by police officers.
They struck up an inappropriate affair at the Hernando Christian Academy, a $7,000-a-year private school in Brooksville, Florida.
Among more than 100 explicit text messages exchanged between the pair include nude photographs she sent the boy of herself.
They met up in the school cafeteria where they engaged in ‘sexual activities’ but authorities have not revealed what those activities were.
Chevalier, who was once previously charged with petty theft, was arrested on August 8.
According to an arrest report obtained by The Tampa Bay Times, she and the teenager started their relationship at the school where she worked.
In text messages they made plans to have sex at another student’s home while their parents were away and also described the lewd acts they wanted to perform on one another.
Chevalier, who is believed to be unmarried, now faces charges including unlawful sexual activity with a child and transmission of harmful material to a child.
She has not yet entered a plea and is awaiting her next court date.
It is the second child sex abuse scandal to hit the religious school this year.

In May, the former principal’s husband Bruce McAllister was accused of molesting foreign exchange students who were visiting the academy.
A lawyer for the academy said it was cooperating with police and prosecutors on both investigations but declined to give any further comment.
‘HCA is committed to helping ensure a proper resolution in these matters and doing so in line with the strong values that have shaped the school since its founding in 1981.
‘Given the ongoing nature of the investigation of these matters, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time,’ lawyer Matt Foreman said.
Assistant State Attorney Erin Daly, who is prosecuting the case, said: ‘When these things happen in schools, it is very unfortunate.
‘We will do everything we can to go forward in making sure these actions are reprimanded.’
Chevalier admitted the affair to police when questioned. The 40-year-old is not thought to be married
