A high school teacher in Washington state has been arrested, accused of having sex with a 16-year-old male student.
25-year-old Olivia Sondheim was arrested last Wednesday after authorities served a search warrant at her home.
The married teacher, who was in her second year teaching choir at Lynnwood High School, was arrested after school officials learned of the allegations, alerted a school resource officer, who then contacted cops.
During the course of that investigation, evidence was uncovered that she and the student developed a relationship that became sexual over time. That student is now 17 years old.
She’s been charged with first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor and booked into the Snohomish County Jail.
She’s been placed on administrative leave at the high school, pending the outcome of the investigation.
