Santa Fe High Art Teacher Jaimie Dominy Page Accused of Sex with Student
A former teacher at a Texas high school has been arrested and charged with having an illicit sexual relationship with an underage male student.
Jaimie Dominy Page, 25, was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged with three felony counts in connection with the alleged relationship, which police say occurred with a boy whose age was not revealed.
Page was charged with sexual abuse of a child, improper relationship between an educator and a student and online solicitation of a minor.
The art teacher, who also allegedly sent the boy sexually explicit photos, resigned during the course of an investigation into her alleged misconduct last month.
The Santa Fe ISD released the following statement regarding the case:
“SFISD believes these are serious charges and believes that such conduct, if it occurred, is unacceptable and despicable. SFISD learned of the possible allegations on February 19, 2013, and immediately began an investigation. During the investigation, Ms. Page resigned. The SFISD Police Department continues to investigate. SFISD encourages any parent or student who may have information to contact the police department. SFISD has notified the State Board for Educator Certification of the alleged conduct and will continue to work with law enforcement on this matter. Santa Fe ISD remains committed to the safety of all students and staff.”
KHOU reports that Page was booked into the Galveston County Jail on bonds totaling $50,000 before posting bond and being released on Thursday afternoon.
