A married high school health teacher in Maine is under investigation by authorities for reportedly having sex with one of her 17-year-old students.

Jill Lamontagne, 29, who is also married, was put on administrative leave in this month when the boy’s parents informed the school that the two had a sexual relationship.

On Monday, a district judge increased a protection-from-abuse order awarded two days after the student’s reportedly tried to commit suicide.

The order forbids the Kennebunk High School health teacher from having contact with the victim for two years, the Portland Press Herald reported.

The complaint states the student said he felt ‘used’ by Lamontagne, who was his teacher

Specific information about the relationship between the mother of two and the young student was revealed in the order filed by the victim’s mother.

The teen was brought to the emergency room on June 9th after consuming a cocktail of drugs. A few days later, he informed a nurse that he had attempted suicide “because of a girl,” before confessing to his aunt that rumors about his relationship with the teacher were true.

“He said he loved her, it happened numerous times, in the classroom, her house, her car,” the boy’s mother indicated in the complaint. “She said she hadn’t had a sexual relationship in two years.”

The health teacher is married with two children

The complaint added that the student said he felt “used” by his teacher but wanted the relationship to continue.

An attorney representing Lamontagne in court rebuffed the allegations.

Lamontagne has worked at the high school for five years and is also an alum of the school.

Katie Hawes, the superintendent of Regional School Unit 21, told WCHS-TV that the school is working with agencies “to ensure the safety of our students and staff.”
