Police have busted a recently married California high school teacher for engaging in a lesbian affair with one of her students.

According to KTLA, cops arrested 32-year-old Camryn Zelinger at Encore High School for the Arts in Riverside, Calif., where she held a teaching position on Monday in connection with her inappropriate relationship with the student.

Zelinger was booked into the county jail on child sex crime charges including suspicion of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor and molestation of a child under the age of 18.

Riverside Police spokesmanRyan Railsback former said the performing arts teacher engaged in the lesbian affair with the female student, who was either 14 or 15 years-old over the course of a “few months.” The girl’s mother discovered the relationship and contacted the Riverside Police Department.

The girl’s mother discovered the relationship and  immediately alerted the Riverside Police Department.

The station reported that Zelinger also stands accused of sending inappropriate “communications” to the victim,

Parents of children who attend the school told Zelinger would often “send requests to other teachers to have the female student removed from class so the two of them could spend time together.”

However, another parent maintained she never saw any evidence or warning signs.

“The way she is and the way she interacts with the children, you would never suspect. You would never think she would do something like that,” Tiffany Florez told KTLA.

According to her LinkedIn page, Zelinger had previously worked at the Orange County School of the Arts and Lola Mae Performing Arts.
