Manassa, Colo., resident Cara Leann Holman was arrested without incident, police said.
The principal of Centauri High School in La Jara, Colo., contacted police recently after he caught wind of a possible inappropriate relationship between Holman and a student, the Sheriff’s Office said.
A deputy assigned to the case found evidence that Holman had been showing up at the student’s workplace and leaving with him during his lunch hour, police said. A thorough investigation revealed that Holman and the teen drove to a spot just outside the Antonito (Colo.) town limits and allegedly had sex, police said.
Police executed a search warrant on Holman’s cell phone and discovered numerous sexual messages sent to the teen, police allege.
Holman stands charged with sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, criminal attempt to commit contributing to the delinquency of a minor and solicitation to commit tampering with physical evidence.
