An area teacher is arrested for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a student.

Authorities say Lana Green of Opelousas Junior High is charged with having the illegal relationship with a 19-year old female that was taking a summer course at the school in 2011.
St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said Green and the victim first exchanged cellphone numbers in the summer and began texting each other shortly thereafter. The sheriff said Green and the victim spent a lot of time together and the student's mother became suspicious and questioned her. Guidroz said it was during this time when the mother allegedly learned her child and Green had been sexually involved on several occasions.

Even though the student is over the age consent, Louisiana law prohibits sexual conduct between an educator and a student.
