Middle school teacher accused of crossing the line with teenage boy appears in court with husband

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - Middle school teacher Andrea Brennan is accused of crossing the line with a teenage boy after police say they found the two in a parked car late at night.

Brennan, 37, is a teacher at North Middle School in Belleville. The school is part of Van Buren Public Schools.

On Tuesday, Brennan was arraigned on multiple charges including Distributing Sexually Explicit Material to a Minor and Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor.

Brennan's husband appeared in court with her.

"Mr. Brennan is very supportive of his wife. He loves her dearly and they have a very strong marriage," said Brennan's defense attorney Loren M. Dickstein.

On July 10th, at 1:30 am, Van Buren Police say they found Brennan and the teen in a parked car near the softball fields at Beck and Ayres Roads.

Brennan had allegedly given the teen alcohol and sexually explicit photos or videos through a computer.

Prosecutors say the teen has never been one of Brennan's students. We're told both deny ever having any sexual contact.

Brennan has been released on a personal bond. Her preliminary examination is set for August 8.

The Superintendent of Van Buren Public Schools released the following statement:

There have been charges of improprieties brought against an adult who teaches in the district. We are cooperating with the criminal authorities to obtain the facts and information regarding these charges.

Van Buren Public Schools will take all appropriate steps necessary to determine the future employment status of this individual to ensure the utmost protection of all our students.

Michael Van Tassel

Superintendent of Schools
