Australian police arrested a married, and pregnant teacher at an elite private school  after she was caught having sex with an underage student on Friday.

Per The Daily Telegraph, prosecutors charged the 33-Year-old teacher of engaging in sexual intercourse with a minor under the age of 18-years old during a court proceeding in the town of Newton this week.

The police were alerted by the school’s officials after the student confided in a counselor about the illicit sexual relationship.

Last month, school officials placed the teacher on suspension as police notified the parents of the investigation and pending charges.

The prosecution maintained the pregnant teacher, who was with her husband and mother in court, used her position to take advantage of the youth. “She was in a position of power and she’s abused that power … she has exercised a degree of influence over him.”

“She was in a position of power and she’s abused that power … she has exercised a degree of influence over him,” prosecutors said in court.

The mother of the educator posted $ 30,000 bond to secure her release. The judge has yet to determine the teacher next court date.

Authorities have withheld the name of the teacher to protect the identity of the underage student. Law enforcement officials have also withheld the name of the affluent school, but reports indicate Prime Ministers have attended the academy.
