Sarah O. Shirey was arrested and charged by state police with seven criminal offenses. She was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Adam Stallard of Linesville.
According to the criminal complaint, Shirey, 32, of 21586 State Highway 285, Cochranton, had sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old student at Shirey’s Fairfield Township home between October 1 and October 30.
Shirey allegedly had sexual contact with the teen while working at Conneaut Area High School, according to the lawsuit. Shirey is also accused of sending the adolescent sexually explicit images.
Shirey faces two counts of intercourse/sexual contact and two counts of unlawful contact with a minor, as well as one count of minor corruption, criminal use of a communication device, and transmitting explicit sexual materials to a minor.
Shirey was brought to the Crawford County jail in Saegertown after arraignment in lieu of a $15,000 bond.
On May 4, she will appear before Magisterial District Judge Amy Nicols in Titusville for a preliminary hearing on the allegations. Because Nicols’ court has authority over Fairfield Township, where the alleged offenses occurred, the matter will be heard there.
Each of the seven offenses is a third-degree felony that carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.
