LOCKHART, Texas (KXAN) — A Lockhart High School science teacher is charged with having an inappropriate relationship with a student.
The Lockhart Police Department says 27-year-old Sarah Fowlkes was “engaged in sexual contact” with a 17-year-old male student. Investigators started looking into the complaint on March 10, when they received a report from a school administrator regarding the potential inappropriate relationship.
Police determined the male student had been in contact with Fowlkes in person and via messages. A warrant was issued for Fowlkes’ arrest on Monday; authorities say she turned herself in and bonded out on the same day.
