A California high school teacher has been arrested for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with her student.
Samantha Lee Ciotta, 32, was arrested Wednesday following a police investigation into allegations that she had sex with a minor.
In a press release by the Beaumont Police Department, the underage victim told detectives that the two had engaged in sexual activity for the past few months.
Investigators also learned that Ciotta, a teacher at Beaumont High School, and the victim had exchanged "inappropriate communications" through various messaging platforms.
Ciotta has been placed on administrative leave by the school.
"Beaumont Police Department Detectives believe that there may be other victims," the department wrote, encouraging anyone with information on the case to come forward.
Ciotta was booked at the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility for unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and oral copulation with persons under the age of 18. She was released on Thursday after posting her bail.Send a Letter to the Editor
