The smiling mug shot of a 27-year-old Texas teacher arrested on suspicion of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student has been lighting up the web.

Sarah Fowlkes turned herself into the Lockhart Police earlier this week after an arrest warrant was issued.

Police said Fowlkes had numerous contact with the student via messaging and in-person, where she fondled the student’s genitals and allowed him to touch her breasts.

The investigation was launched earlier this month after a Lockhart High School administrator contacted the police.

Fowlkes, who is married, faces 2nd degree charges of improper relationship between educator and student.
