A 54-year-old female teacher has been charged by NSW Police for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old student.
The high school teacher from Coffs Harbour, on the NSW mid-north coast, was arrested for engaging in sexual intercourse with the male student, and was charged with five counts of sexual intercourse with a child under 18 in special care.
She was also charged with once count of indecent assault.
Police have confirmed that the woman was granted conditional bail and will face court in on January 6, 2015.
In 2013, a retired school teacher who worked in the Coffs Harbour area was jailed for the sexual assault of a girl.
He was found guilty on eight counts of offences against a child between the period of 1984 and 1989.
The Child Abuse Squad works with the Department of Family and Community Services and NSW Health to investigate crimes against children.
