STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say a Bulloch County teacher
has been arrested and charged with child molestation after the
parents of a 14-year-old male student told authorities she had sex
with the child.

Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said 35-year-old Amy Bass
Jackson was arrested Wednesday and has resigned from her teaching job.

Jackson faces charges that include aggravated child molestation,
statutory rape, enticing a child for indecent purposes, sexual
assault by a person with supervisory or disciplinary authority,
computer or electronic child exploitation, sexual exploitation of
children and furnishing harmful material to minors.

Anderson told the Statesboro Herald that investigators learned
of a relationship after the boy and his parents filed a complaint.
It wasn't known late Wednesday whether Jackson had an attorney,
and she could not be reached for comment.
