Police: CV teacher investigated for sexual contact with student

A Cumberland Valley High School teacher is facing charges for having sexual contact with a student.

According to a search warrant affidavit filed Thursday, investigators are looking at phone records between the woman and the male student, who told police they engaged in a sexual act in a classroom after school hours “about a week or so ago.”

abc27 News is not releasing the teacher's name because no charges have been filed.

Silver Spring police Superintendent Richard Hammon said authorities have nearly completed their investigation and have recommend charges in findings submitted to the Cumberland County District Attorney's Office.

District Attorney Dave Freed has scheduled a news conference for 11 a.m. Friday.

The school district, in a statement on its website, said administrators learned of the allegations Monday and notified police and the district attorney's office.

The teacher was removed from the high school and placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

The teacher resigned from Cumberland Valley on Wednesday, effective immediately, according to the statement.

The district said it is cooperating fully with the investigation.
