LEAGUE CITY, Texas -- She s been teaching in the Clear Creek School District for over ten years, but accusations that Stephanie Forbes has been having an on-going relationship with a student have put a stop to that.
The 40-year-old handed in her resignation in December.
Forbes most recently taught at Clear Creek High School in League City. The investigation into the alleged sexual relationship between the teacher and a student started last month.
On Thursday, police arrested Forbes at her home on Sorrelwood Drive in League.
Her father came to the door when KHOU11 News knocked for a comment.
You ll have to talk to her. She s not here, he said.
Forbes has posted bond on conditions that she stay away from children if there isn t an adult present.
The subject proved to be a touchy one in Forbes League City neighborhood.
I don t want to talk about it. She s a friend of mine, said one woman across the street.
Parents attending a Friday night basketball game at Clear Creek High were just finding out about the accusations.
You re teaching the kids. Why are you trying to have a relationship with the kids you re trying to teach. You re not setting a good example for kids or nothing, said Mary Johnson.
Investigators allege this wasn t a one-time incident.
The sexual relationship between Forbes and the student allegedly went on for a while. It s unclear where they were reportedly meeting up.
Authorities say the student s family found out and contacted authorities. Documents say that victim is a child 16 or under.
