A Gilbert teacher was arrested on June 20 for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with an underage student.

Gilbert Police Department spokesperson Jesse Sanger said 29-year-old Andrew James Teaters of Mesa, allegedly had sex with one of his students, a 17-year-old woman, at Gilbert Early College, and currently faces three charges of sexual misconduct with a minor. He added the case is dependent upon the victim, who he said can decline to press charges once she turns 18.

Additional details were unavailable because the investigation is ongoing.
