A female high school teacher was arrested on Tuesday after a student reported her for allegedly pressuring him into sex inside a classroom in New Mexico, United States.
In a report from Albuquerque Journal, the teacher was identified as Jennifer Vigil, 31, accused of raping one of her male students in a classroom at Pojoaque Valley High School in Santa Fe in the said state.
The suspect maintains that the sex was consensual, but the student says he told her he found the idea of sex with Vigil "disgusting." The unidentified student took a photo of the sexual act using his cellphone, and said that he only consented to sex because Vigil locked the doors and propositioned him, according to a detective's report.
Vigil, who has worked at Pojoaque Valley schools for eight years, is suspected of having sex with the male horticulture student on two separate occasions, according to a detective's criminal complaint filed in Magistrate Court.
The teen reported that on the first occasion, he was turning in an assignment after school when Vigil said he's not leaving until she gets something from him. The student claims he refused her advances but then later agreed to a sexual act so that he could leave.
The second time reportedly happened during lunch, moments after Vigil's morning class had cleared the room.
Vigil reportedly claims it was the student who asked for sexual favors, and that he's an adult.
