A teacher has been arrested on six counts of sexual battery after footage of her surfaced showing the woman having intercourse and performing other sexual acts with an underage student.

Amber Turnage, a former teacher of biology at Provine High School in Mississippi, was taken into custody on May 18th.

The married mother-of-five purportedly engaged in the relationship with a 17-year-old student, who has not been identified, from December 2016 until April 27th of this year.

A grand jury charged her with six counts of sexual battery.

Warren Martin, the teen’s lawyer, said that the affair was revealed after other students reported that recordings of Turnage and the 17-year-old were being posted on social media.

Martin added that the teacher gave the teen credit cards, gift cards, and money to keep him quiet.

“My client was entrapped in a sexual scam,” the attorney asserted.

“This teacher preyed upon him, and when she realized he was close to revealing her criminality, she sought to conceal it by offering cash payments.”

Turnage’s husband of nearly 16 years has since indicated that he is “nearly divorced.”

Turnage was terminated from her job by the Jackson Public School District after an investigation into the conflict, which also resulted in the charges against her.

She joined Provine High School in Jackson in 2015.
