An eighth grade Arkansas teacher has been arrested on Friday (Oct. 12) for first-degree sexual assault of a minor, according to Dardanelle School District Superintendent John Thompson.
Chrystal Vega was charged Friday, October 12, with first-degree sexual assault after an investigation that began on September 11, 2018, according to court documents filed in Pope County court.
The teacher admitted to investigators that she met with the teen at the park, but denied that they had sex, according to River Valley Now.
Vega was a language arts teacher at Dardanelle Middle School but is no longer listed as an employee on the Dardanelle Public Schools website.
Police spoke with Vega, who confirmed that she had a texting relationship with the student that had “crossed the line” and that she had met him at the park, documents show. She denied having sexual contact with the teen.
