34-year-old Katherine Flory of Atkins

Authorities say an employee at an Arkansas school has been arrested in the sexual assault of a student.

Atkins Police Chief Stephen Pack said his department began investigating Katherine Flory after word spread that the 34-year-old may be having a sexual relationship with a student, who is now 18. The chief confirmed Tuesday that Flory works at the Atkins School District.

On Oct. 13, Pack submitted his case to the county prosecutor.

That same day, the Atkins School District placed an employee on paid administrative leave, after being “notified that allegations had been made against the employee,” Atkins School District Superintendent Joe Fisher said Tuesday.

On Monday, Flory was arrested on a first-degree sexual assault charge, according to Pope County jail records. She was released on $2,500 bond later that day. Flory's next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 18.

The investigation is ongoing.

Teachers/school staff having sex with students is either ok or wrong. The gender of either is irrelevant.

Be consistent

Sexual "assault" of a male student ??? Enticement maybe but assault doesn't sound right. How old was he? He is 18 now but how old then? She looks really sick physically and probably mentally. It is unusual for a female to force sex on a male since there are endless willing partners out there.

D, I believe when there is a teacher/student situation, it’s always called assault even if consensual and even if the victim is of consenting age.
If this had happened the summer after the victim had graduated HS, there’d be no crime.
