HOSCHTON, Ga. (AP) — A Gwinnett County teacher has been arrested after police say she had an inappropriate relationship with a male student.

The Gwinnett County Police Department says in a news release that 48-year-old Julee Impara was arrested Tuesday on one count of sexual assault. Impara was a teacher at Mill Creek High School.

The release says the student's mother found inappropriate text messages on her 17-year-old son's phone between him and Impara. The mother of the victim confronted Impara about the relationship, and Impara didn't deny the relationship.

The victim met Impara last fall while she was his teacher. The victim told investigators that he and Impara began having sexual contact outside of school, and that Impara picked him up at his home on occasion.

Gwinnett County Schools says Impara resigned on Dec. 9.
