A Norristown teacher has been arrested and charged with having sex with her 14-year-old student, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday.
Jessica Streeper, 33, of Doylestown is an eighth-grade math teacher at Eisenhower Middle School, District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said.
The Norristown Police Department on May 19 received an anonymous tip that an eighth-grade teacher at Eisenhower was involved in an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student, the District Attorney's Office said. Their subsequent investigation led them to Streeper's relationship with the student, police said.
Streeper and the boy communicated regularly by text message, and a forensic examination of the victim's phone showed that the messages were sexual in nature, the District Attorney's Office said.
On several occasions, Streeper picked the boy up at his Norristown home and they had sex in her car, police said. On multiple occasions she brought him to her Doylestown home, where they had sex.
Streeper faces charges of institutional sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors and related charges, and was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday afternoon in Norristown.
The case will be prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Jordan Friter.
