BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Ashley Dowden, 39, is facing felony sex charges tonight.
The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office says she admitted to having sex with one of her 16-year-old students.
Investigators say the teen's parents found nude photos, and explicit texts from Dowden and even though their sexual relationship was consensual, it's a felony because of the teen's age.
Dowden is allegedly a teacher at Riverdale Christian Academy and that's where the teen says they had sex.
No word on what her job status is with the school.
At last check, Dowden was still in the EBR Parish Jail on a $15,000 bond.
