You can’t make this shit up!
Elizabeth Suzanne Bailey, a North Carolina teacher accused of engaging in sexual relationships with one of her students, was arrested again when police discovered that she had invited the same student to her home nine times after being placed under house arrest.
According to the Irridell Free Press, detectives from the Irridell County Sheriff’s Office had reasons to believe that the 36-year-old woman had intimate relations with the student in June, so they arrested her on three felony sex charges, among which are statutory rape of a person who is 15 or under 15 years of age.
Bailey was issued a $75,000 bond, placed under house arrest, and subjected to electronic monitoring after turning herself in on August 1.
On September 2, she was held again when the police were told of the planned meet-ups, according to NY Post.
Bailey was charged with an additional 27 charges at the Iredell County Detention Center following her detention. These violations included a total of nine misdemeanor counts of contributing to a minor’s delinquency, the same number of felony counts of interfering with a state witness and intimidating, and nine felony counts of violating pretrial release conditions.
She is currently being jailed under an $800,000 secured bond.
Bailey taught science at Northview Academy in the Iredell-Statesville School District, according to the Irridell Free Press. She began working for the district in 2010 as an assistant and later advanced to the position of special education teacher.

A 32-year-old teacher, Marka Bodine, will be jailed for just 60 days, after admitting to sleeping with a 13-year-old boy in her classroom. She is accused of abusing the boy, but her sentence has been delayed because she just had a baby. There was hope by the prosecutors for a sentence of up to 40 years in prison.
While teaching English at Tomball Intermediate School in Texas, Bodine met the boy. Bodine allegedly started chatting to him on Fortnite before they started texting, the victim told police, per reports. The texting between the two became explicit, and shortly after that, they slept together after he turned 13. And for three years, the abuse continued, court documents said, with Bodine sleeping with the boy in her classroom and in her car on several occasions.
Following her divorce, she even moved into his apartment complex. But when Bodine told her school principal that she was being harassed by a former student, who was threatening to harm himself, the abuse came to light. The police took Bodine and the boy’s phones to search them and then they found the explicit messages.
