A disgraced teacher is alleged to have bought ice cream and alcohol for one of her teenage students and his pal before taking him to her grandparents' house for sex.
Alexis Mercedes Boberg, 25, reportedly sent the boy racy messages using social app Snapchat and met him for sexual encounters on a number of occasions, including in the car park of a shopping centre.
The student claimed his first inappropriate encounter with Boberg, who worked as a substitute teacher in the US state of Maryland since 2017, happened when he was with a friend.
She drove them to a snack stand, where they chatted and ate snow cones, then took them to a shop and bought miniature bottles of rum for them.
The North County High School student, who also takes classes at the Center of Applied Technologies North in Glen Burnie, is believed to have met Boberg alone a few days later at a car park, where they engaged in sex acts.
When the teenager told his mum about his relationship with the teacher, she reportedly took steps to keep Boberg away from him by applying for a court order.
People who would prey on children simply have no place in our school system.
According to the Sun, she wrote: "During the last 20 days, my son has been manipulated into a sexual relationship [with] his substitute teacher at school."
Boberg was in court on Monday (June 17) charged with fourth-degree sexual offence with a person in a position of authority and consuming alcohol on public property.
If found guilty, she could spend up to a year in prison per count of sexual offence.
It's not known which school she was at when she met the teenager, as she taught at a number of institutions.
A spokesman for One Anne Arundel County Schools spokesperson quoted by the Sun said she had served as a substitute at several of the district's schools since 2017.
They also said she has been banned from the classroom and is not believed to have victimized other students, adding: "People who would prey on children simply have no place in our school system."
