A Lockhart (TX) High School science teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student has been arrested and suspended from her job.
Sarah M. Fowlkes, 27, who has worked for the school district since October 2014, turned herself in at the Lockhart Police Station late Monday morning on a warrant and was booked into the Caldwell County Jail, police said. Lockhart is about 35 miles southeast of Austin.
Reports indicate that officers received a report March 10th from a school administrator at Lockhart High School about a possible inappropriate relationship between a student and a teacher. The investigation led a Lockhart detective to a 17-year-old male student, who had been in contact in person with Fowlkes and claims their relationship was of a sexual nature.
