A former teacher at a Westchester Catholic high school is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student.
Amanda Iles, 27, was a teacher at Archbishop Stepinac High School, an all-boys school in White Plains.
According to authorities, the boy’s parents discovered he was having an inappropriate relationship with Illes and contacted Yonkers police. Illes and the boy allegedly had several sexual encounters between June 11 and July 14 of 2013.
Illes moved back to California recently but returned to New York to surrender to Eastchester police Wednesday morning.
“As a teacher, this defendant was in a position of trust and authority. In becoming involved with a student incapable of consent, she abused that privilege. Multi-jurisdictional detective work by police quickly led to the identification and arrest of the defendant,” said District Attorney Janet DiFiore in a statement.
Illes has been charged with two counts of second degree rape and is being held on $75,000 bond.
She faces seven years in state prison if convicted.
