A former teacher who taught at Woodlan High School is arrested after allegedly having sex with a 17 year old student. 

Under Indiana law, a teen can consent to sex when they are 16 or older. But in this case, since the woman was a teacher in a position of authority, the law says the teen must be 18 years old.

Former special education teacher Paige Mostella, 29, was charged Wednesday after allegations surfaced that she had sexual relations with a student back in 2013. The Journal Gazette reports that the investigation started when a former student took a polygraph exam.

The teen told police that he and Mostella would play fight in her office. On two occasions, the teen reportedly had sex with Mostella.

The East Allen County School District was contacted in February by Indiana State Police about the investigation into alleged sexual misconduct. 

The district released a statement to WFFT saying, "EACS fully cooperated during the investigation. In deference to the investigation by the Indiana State Police, we are not at liberty to discuss any further details."
