Catholic School Teacher Arrested for Having Sexual Relationship With 14-year-old Student

A teacher at a Catholic school in Phoenix was arrested over the weekend for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a now-14-year-old female student.

Carl Mosher, 32, a physical education teacher at St. Gregory's Catholic School, was arrested Saturday morning after the parents of a 14-year-old student at the school called police and said they discovered he was having a sexual relationship with their daughter.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, the relationship between Mosher and the girl began in December of 2010, when the girl was just 13, and continued through last week.

Police say the sexual contact between Mosher and the student occurred in his office on school property.

Police say they have no reason to believe there are any more victims.

Mosher's been charged with four counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
