A married teacher got accused of having sex with her student but the teacher is not worried and is smiling on the mug shot! The photo became viral since the teacher can be seen smiling.
The teacher, Sarah Fowlkes, 27, got arrested on Monday by police after she was accused of having sex with her student.
The photos taken after her arrest shows that she is not afraid as she was smiling in front of the camera, despite the fact that she might get jail time. The mug shot became popular as it gained the attention of social media and some foreign news sites.
According to her lawyer, the teacher was able to smile like that since she knows that she has nothing to worry about. She is innocent and that can be easily proven.
Fowlkes teaches anatomy and physiology at the school. Before the arrest, in her profile in the school website, it says that she has high expectations and she wants the year to be productive.
Reports said that before the arrest, she was celebrating her birthday with her husband.
“Fowlkes was charged Monday with engaging in ‘sexual contact with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of’ the male student at Lockhart (Texas) High School, where she taught anatomy and physiology and environmental systems.
She faces up to 20 years in prison for the second-degree felony, and she has already been suspended from her teaching position,” writes Pennlive.
According to police detectives in Texas, she shouldn’t be smiling since that is a serious offense and is not right. As a teacher, she has the power to take advantage of the situation.
