A Pennsylvania wife, mother of three, and former teacher is accused of having sex with a teenage student. Erica Ann Ginnetti, a 33-year-old Lower Moreland High School math teacher, was suspended and turned herself in Friday after allegations that she was having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male student, according to NBC Philadelphia.
Authorities said the relationship began in May of last year. Ginnetti allegedly approached the boy during the high school prom, asking him if he would like to work out at her gym with her.
Days later, the boy e-mailed the teacher and she replied with her cell phone number, according to Philly.com.
Delco Times reported that Ginnetti allegedly sent explicit text messages and videos to the teen. Photos included pictures of the accused wearing only a bikini, underwear or a thong, along with a video that showed her undressing in a “sexually charged manner,” according to court documents.
In July, the relationship progressed to sex. Ginnetti and the student allegedly met at a coffee shop before the teacher drove him to an industrial park. There, the two allegedly had sex in her car.
Ginnetti dropped the boy back off at his house and asked him not to tell anyone, according to an arrest affidavit.
