A female teacher at a Catholic school has been charged with over 200 child sex abuse offenses after she reportedly had sex with her female students while videotaping their trysts.

On Thursday, Randi Zurenko from Millerstown, Pennsylvania, was taken into custody.

Authorities allege that the 33-year-old sexually abused two girls on hundreds of occasions between 2013-2016.

She now faces 153 counts of child sex abuse, 13 of institutional sexual assault, 33 of unlawful contact with minors, 20 of dissemination of obscene material to a juvenile, and 13 counts of corrupting minors, WHTM reported.

The woman first abused one of her student’s at a park back in 2013, according to the Dauphin County’s District Attorney’s Office.

She gave her a massage, unclipped her bra, and lured her with alcohol on numerous occasions, authorities reported.

The student, who has since graduated, was underage at every encounter.

Zurenko purportedly began to violate the second girl from October 2015 to the present, snapping pictures of the child half-nude and them together while they were having sex.

She texted the girl nude selfies and also acknowledged that she took photographs of the student on her cell phone.

Their most recent encounter was reportedly last Friday, and law enforcement officials questioned the woman four days later.

“During the course of the interview, Zurenko admitted to providing both victim 1 and victim two alcohol while they were students at Bishop McDevitt. She also admitted that, while employed as a teacher at Bishop McDevitt High School, she had a sexual relationship with victim 2, a current student at the school. Zurenko also admitted to taking nude photographs of Victim 2,” a statement issued by the District Attorney’s Office stated.

The institution placed her on administrative leave in response to the probe.

“It is with great sadness that we have learned that criminal charges have been filed against staff member Mrs. Randi Zurenko,” the school administrators indicated in a statement.
