ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A teacher from Annapolis High School has been arrested for sexually abusing a 17-year-old boy.

The incident, which was first reported to police in July, allegedly involved 41-year-old Jennifer Arnold, who is from Arnold, Maryland. 

The victim, who now lives out of state, detailed inappropriate sexual contact with the suspect that occurred while he was a student at the school during an interview with police in July.
