Kristina Ngum, an exceptional children’s teacher at Myers Park High School in Charlotte, turned herself in at the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday. According to cops, Ngum, 43, had sex with a male student at an undisclosed off-campus location. Authorities did not say when the rape occurred. The age of the student was also not released.
Reports indicate that law enforcement officials began investigating the perverted teacher on Friday after detectives arrested the student on an unrelated drug charge. According to reports, the student begged Ngum to give him a ride home after school on Friday. She was pulled over by cops shortly after, and officers found an unspecified drug in the boy’s possession.
Ngum’s husband, who would not say his first name, said he did not believe the charges against his wife.
“That is not my wife,” he told the local media in a phone interview. “She would not do that.”
This is not Ngum’s first run-in with the law. In 2011 she was arrested on charges of false pretense and misdemeanor larceny. In 2008 she was also convicted of driving while impaired.
Ngum is being held in the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office on a $2,500 secured bond.
