MONROE, N.C. (AP) — A Union County high school science teacher has been arrested and charged with having sex with a student.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jessica Marie Deck was arrested Thursday and charged with indecent liberties with a 17-year old male student. Deck was to appear in court Friday. It was not clear if she has an attorney.

Deck teaches chemistry and physics at Sun Valley High School. Union County Public Schools spokesman Rob Jackson says she has been suspended with pay.

Jackson says Deck has been a teacher at the school since 2012.
