The illicit relationship allegedly started in late 2021.
“The investigation began after the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office received a report of an inappropriate relationship between a teacher and students,” reads the statement, noting that the investigation into McAllister’s alleged actions continues.
The English teacher, who worked at Tabb High School in Yorktown, was charged with two felony counts of taking indecent liberties with a child by a person in a custodial or supervisory relationship and two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
She has not entered pleas to the charges and was released on bond.
