A former substitute teacher in Maryland is accused of bringing a student to her grandmother's house to continue their inappropriate sexual relationship.
Alexis Boberg, 25, was charged on June 14 with two counts of a fourth-degree sex offense with a person in a position of authority, along with one count of consuming an alcoholic beverage while on public property. Three days later, Boberg was taken into police custody without incident. Boberg had been investigated for her alleged relationship with a student at the Center for Applied Technology North in Severn, Maryland where she had been employed after the teenager told police about the alleged encounters on June 4.
Marc Limanski with Anne Arundel County Police described how their alleged relationship developed.
“It happened somewhere else, off school premises. The teacher had initially reached out to this student by sending a telephone number. Some text messaging had gone back and forth, they developed a relationship over time and the student elected to come forward to police,” Limanski told CBS Baltimore.
Charing documents obtained by the Capital Gazette of Annapolis, Maryland further detail how the alleged sexual encounters between Boberg and the student stemmed from conversations on Snapchat.
The two had met at the school where Boberg worked as a sub but eventually planned several rendezvous off-campus after exchanging phone numbers, according to the documents. They first met up with friends of the teen's at a snowball stand. Boberg then allegedly drove the children to a liquor store where she purchased alcohol for them and they all drank together. After that, Boberg allegedly began sending explicit images to the student over social media. The teen and Boberg then allegedly met up for sex at Boberg's grandmother's house on May 24. They allegedly met up once more at a nearby mall three days later and had sex again in Boberg's car.
The teenager remains unnamed in reports. The student's exact age has been withheld to protect his identity.
Detectives executed a search warrant on June 5 and took several items for investigation, according to a police statement. The evidence collected led to police obtaining an arrest warrant on June 14, the same day charges were filed.
The Anne Arundel County School Board forbade Boberg from having any further contact with children as soon as they were informed of the investigation.
Boberg had been a substitute teacher at the school since 2017. There is no evidence suggesting that she had inappropriate relations with any other students during this time, authorities say.
Boberg could be released on her own recognizance, according to a judge's ruling on the matter at a hearing.
Peter O’Neill, Boberg’s defense attorney, said his client will enter a plea of not guilty, according to The Capital Gazette.
