Stephen Garcia Vandalism Update

Teacher arrested for sex with minors

Twenty-three-year-old-female middle school teacher Allenna Ward was arrested there today after officials say she may have had sex with five boys between the ages of 14 and 15.

The semi-cute teacher is being held on $110,000 bail and there’s no word yet on if the sex, which authorities say may have happened both inside the school, at a nearby motel and a park behind a restaurant, was worth it.

The students were from Bell Street Middle School.
