Wake County officials say a fired teacher from Thales Academy is facing 12 counts of taking indecent liberties with a child.
Paula Louise Stinson, 30, of Wake Forest was arrested Friday at the private school in Rolesville.
Thales Academy confirmed Friday night that Stinson had been a teacher at the school but had been terminated.
The Wake County Sheriff’s Office said the charges against Stinson involved a boy student.
“During the investigation it was also discovered that the suspect and student had engaged in inappropriate interactions at the school and boy’s home, over a two-week period,” a news release from Wake County Sheriff’s Office said.
The case was uncovered when the boy’s parents found text messages between Stinson and their juvenile son and then turned them over to authorities.
Stinson has been released on a $75,000 bond.
