PONCA CITY, Okla. (AP) - Second-degree rape and forcible sodomy charges have been filed against a former Ponca City middle school teacher.
Ashley Renea Flores, 26, pleaded not guilty in Kay County District Court Wednesday to having a month-long, sexual relationship with a 14-year-old male student in her math class earlier this year.
A court affidavit states that Flores and the student engaged in sexual acts on "six to eight different occasions" in July in various places including her house and her vehicle.
The affidavit further claims Flores encouraged the student to lie about his whereabouts.
Flores faces one count of forcible sodomy and four counts of second-degree rape.
Ponca City Public Schools hired Flores in August 2005. Flores resigned in July.
