DAVIE COUNTY, N.C. — A Davie County High School teacher is accused of having sexual activity with a student, according to Chief Deputy J.D. Hartman with the Davie County Sheriff’s Office.
Jessica Welch Greene, 27, of Mocksville, is charged with three counts of sexual activity with a student.
On Dec. 2, the sheriff’s office received a report from the Davie County School System regarding a possible inappropriate relationship between a teacher and a student, Hartman said.
The sheriff’s office began an investigation with the assistance of the school system, ultimately leading to Greene being charged on Tuesday.
The school system said in a statement they first learned of the allegations of misconduct on Dec. 1.
Greene was suspended on Dec. 2 and was later suspended without pay on Monday, the school system said.
Greene is accused of having sexual conduct with the student both on and off campus between Nov. 1 and the first week of December, Hartman said.
Greene was placed in the Davie County Detention Center under a $15,000 secured bond.
The school system said in a statement Tuesday, “The safety of all of our students continues to be a top priority, and we will continue to partner with parents, our community, and law enforcement to maintain a safe teaching and learning environment for the students we serve.”
