RALEIGH — A teacher is being accused of improper sexual relations with a female student.
According to WSOC TV (Charlotte), 33-year-old Shannon Best is accused of having sex with one student who spent the night at her house one night prior to a scheduled track meet. Another female student also spent the night.
The WSOC report noted that authorities had obtained a search warrant. According to the warrant sometime during the night a digital photograph was taken, allegedly showing the teacher kissing one of the female students.
Although the student involved is 18 years old, North Carolina law prohibits any kind of sexual relationship between a teacher and student, regardless of age.
