Cops: Obsessed Teacher Spoke of Running Away With Pupil, 11

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police say a Pittsburgh elementary school teacher who resigned this month was obsessed with one of her 11-year-old students, encrypting her phone number on the girl's math homework, exchanging thousands of text messages with her and even talking of running away with her.

Twenty-eight-year-old Geraldine Alcorn was arraigned Wednesday on charges of child luring, corruption of minors and attempting to interfere with custody of the child. She was jailed after being unable to post $100,000 bond.

Police don't believe Alcorn's attraction to the girl was sexual but said she continued to leave gifts and letters for the girl at school even after the girl's mother complained and Alcorn resigned.

Online records don't list an attorney for Alcorn, and none appeared on her behalf at the arraignment.
