Murrieta teacher arrested for alleged sexual relations with student

MURRIETA, Calif. (KABC) -- A high school teacher was arrested for allegedly having sexual relations with one of her students, according to the Murrieta Police Department.

Shannon Fosgett, 44, is accused of having the inappropriate relationship with a male student at Murrieta Valley High School.

The relationship began with after-hours texting and escalated to a sexual relationship involving intercourse and oral sex, according to a press release issued by police.

Fosgett resigned from her job Wednesday, shortly after the news was brought to the attention of school administrators by other students.

Fosgett turned herself in to the Murrietta Police Department Friday, where she was arrested and charged with one count of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor under 18 and two counts of oral copulation with a minor.
