Arkansas high school teacher accused of having sex with 4 students

Former Arkansas high school teacher Jessie Lorene Goline, 25, is accused by law enforcement of having sexual relations with four high school students in 2016, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported

Goline was formally charged on Wednesday with one count of first degree sexual assault, according to online court records. The Democrat-Gazette reported that only one of the four students were under 18 at the time of the encounters. 

Authorities told the Democrat-Gazette that Goline allegedly had sex with two students she had taken to her apartment on the same day.

In the affidavit, Goline believed one of the students was 18 but he was not. 

Three of the male students were from the Marked Tree School District, and one was from the East Poinsett County School District. They told authorities that they received text messages from Goline, and that their conversations became more sexual over time. 

Authorities learned of the alleged incidents in April when a parent threatened to “do bodily harm to one of their teachers.” That's when one of the parents came forward. 

Goline, who was released later on Wednesday, faces a judge in October.
