The woman, Andrea Nicole Baber, 29, was arrested by deputies on Friday at her home, which has a Cottage Grove postal code but is located near Curtin in Douglas County.
According to deputies, Baber allegedly began a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male student in 2016, which continued “on a regular basis.” Deputies said Baber also provided the minor with marijuana and alcohol, according to court documents.
The relationship was first reported to law enforcement last week after the boy’s father received an anonymous email asking whether he knew his teenage son was in a sexual relationship with Baber, according to court documents. Attached to the email were several photos of Baber and the boy in bed together.
According to court documents, Baber and the teenager were caught in bed by Baber’s husband on Dec. 5.
Authorities interviewed the teen, who told deputies that he and Baber had been in a relationship since 2016, when the boy was 15.
According to the affidavit, the boy told deputies that their relationship started with flirting at school, kissing at the movies and eventually progressed to sexual acts. He estimated having sex with his teacher once or twice a week at her residence on Territorial Highway, the affidavit states. He also told deputies that Baber occasionally gave him marijuana and alcohol.
During the investigation, authorities discovered that Baber’s husband recently made a report with Child Protective Services after he caught his wife and the teen in the Baber home, partially unclothed, according to the affidavit.
