A 37-year-old mother of two Texas high school teacher and football coach’s wife is accused of engaging in an improper relationship with a 15-year-old student, police say.
Jamie Lynn Goforth, a teacher at Caldwell High School, turned herself in to the Burleson County Sheriff on Sunday on a charge of improper relationship between educator and student, which is a second-degree felony, the sheriff’s office said in a press release.
The sheriff’s office said that a warrant was issued for Goforth’s arrest on February 9, but when deputies went to locate her, they learned she had left the county. Goforth then surrendered Sunday afternoon at the Burleson County Jail, and she remained in custody Sunday night, records showed.
According to the sheriff’s office, school officials notified them of the alleged improper behavior on February 2 and an “investigation began immediately.” The sheriff’s office said that investigators found the teacher had been involved in the “relationship” with the teen since October 2017.
“The sheriff’s office is cooperating fully with Caldwell ISD and is continuing their investigation of this incident,” the press release said.
