Pinal County Teacher Arrested for Allegedly Having Sex With Student. Yes, the Teacher is a Woman -- and Yes, We Have Her Mug Shot

For what is now the third time in about a month, a female teacher at an Arizona school has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a student (well, this time, a former pupil).

The latest pin-up girl for your adolescent fantasies: 26-year-old Andrea Martinez.

Check out Martinez's mug shot after the jump.


Martinez was arrested Wednesday night after police caught her having sex with a 14-year-old boy who happens to be one of her former pupils at the Stanfield Elementary School.

According to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, deputies watched as a white SUV pulled to the side of the road near a spot where officers from the Gila River Police Department were conducting a multi-agency detail at about 10:40 p.m. yesterday.

Officers watched from a distance -- using night vision goggles -- as two people had sex in the SUV.

According to police, before officers had a chance to ask the couple what they were doing, the two exited the SUV and started arguing outside of the vehicle.

When officers did engage Martinez and the victim, they realized that the boy was 14 and that Martinez, of course, is an adult.

The two admitted to having consensual sex in the SUV, and the, um, victim told police he and Martinez had had sex in the past, too.

Martinez was arrested this morning and is expected to be charged with child molestation, police say.
