An arrest warrant was acquired after it was claimed that Katherine Ruth Harper sent nude photos and had sex with the student over the summer holiday.

The 27-year-old met the teenager at Tidwell Middle School in Roanoke, where she worked as a cheerleading coach, tennis coach and 7th-grade teacher.

The arrest warrant claims that the boy was questioned by his principal and confessed to the sexual encounters, according to Chron.

“One thing led to another and she told me to ‘put it in’ and I did,” the boy said, according to the warrant.

The meetings also apparently included drinking alcohol and the teenager performing oral sex on Harper.

She is 8 months pregnant but it is not yet clear if the student is the baby’s father, according to Fox News.

Authorities were notified by an anonymous tip and Harper has been placed on administrative leave.

Harper was arrested and later released from Denton County Jail.

She has been charged with having an improper relationship with a student - a second-degree felony.
