Alexandra McLean, a 27-year-old former theater teacher at Englewood High School, has been arrested for an alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male student. McLean is being charged with two counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, 7News reports.
The 17-year-old victim and McLean are believed to have met each other during the production of a high school play at Englewood High School, CBS4 reports. McLean would occasionally drive the victim home from rehearsals and in McLean's car is where they allegedly wound up having sex together somewhere around Nov 15. and Nov. 16, according to The Denver Post.
Englewood Police told 9News that they were tipped off about the alleged sexual assault when they received a call from an unnamed 29-year-old woman who claimed that her younger brother was bragging about a sexual relationship with McLean. The victim told police that he and McLean had consensual sex in her car twice and that McLean did not threaten him or make any promises.
The 17-year-old's cell phone was reportedly filled with text messages between McLean and himself which included details about their sexual encounters. According to Fox31, the day after one of the sexual assaults occurred, the victim sent a text message to a friend reading, "So much sex." Another exchange between the teacher and student was more graphic, with McLean texting to the student, "Really good. It would have been better if you were here though," to which the student replied, "Lol the sleeping or the pleasuring yourself?" And McLean answered with, "Ha both I guess."
McLean last worked at Englewood High on Nov. 18 and fully resigned in December 2011. She turned herself into police on Wednesday and Englewood schools notified parents of the charges against McLean the same day.
