Jessie Lorene Goline, a 25-year old art teacher from northeast Arkansas, was arrested on Wednesday due to accusations that she had inappropriate relationships with four students.
By which we mean she's accused of having SEX with four students.
According to a filing in Craighead County Circuit Court, Goline has been charged with one count of first degree sexual assault.
Why only one, if she presumably slept with four students?
Because only one of those students was under the age of 18.
An affidavit cited by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette says Goline claims that student turned out to be “way younger than what he told her,” but that is far beside the point, of course.
Goline has admitted to sleeping with all four of these individuals.
The reported acts took place between January and April of 2016, authorities say.
The Democrat-Gazette writes that Goline would send these four unnamed teenagers text messages that grew increasingly sexual over time.
One of the victims alleges that his teacher commented on his good looks in front of the class and then sent him a photograph of herself in a thong.
Moreover, Goline brought two of the students back to her apartment and had sex with them in separate incidents... on the same day, it has now been confirmed.
One student says he was dropped off by a friend at Goline’s residence in Jonesboro, where the two had sexual intercourse.
And then another student, who was enrolled in Goline’s class, says the teacher picked him up in the afternoon and took him to her apartment... where they got it on before she took him back home to school later in the day.
Forget playing hooky.
This was an example of playing tonsil hockey - and then some!
An investigation got underway in April after Marked Tree High School officials learned that a worried parent had threatened to “do bodily harm to one of their teachers.”
The parent had accused Goline of having sex with numerous students.
As officials attempted to piece together what happened and who could be to blame, Goline entered the principal's office around this time and broke down in tears.
That sort of served as a giveaway.
According to Fox News, “Goline was booked into the Craighead County Detention Center Wednesday afternoon on a $5,000 bond, and was waiting for an Oct. 31 court appearance” but was released later in the day.
If convicted, she could face 10 to 40 years, or life, in prison.
And she's also married.
