After 8 years, a person accused the then-teacher at a high school in Montgomery County, Maryland, of sexually abusing a student.
Local police said they conducted an investigation last month into such sexual abuse allegations made by an unidentified former Montgomery Village High School student against Melissa Curtis, 31, who taught at the school. She said the alleged abuse began in 2015, when he was 14 and she was 22.
Police said these incidents continued for several months until late April 2015 at various locations, including the school itself and his vehicle.
Police estimate there could be more victims.
An arrest warrant was issued for Curtis on October 31 after she was charged with sexual abuse of a minor and multiple counts of third and fourth degree sex crimes. However, she turned herself in on Tuesday, November 7, at the police station itself, given the various evidence supported.
Education officials said Curtis was a teacher in Montgomery County for approximately two years and also taught at Lakelands Park Middle School.
Other potential victims or their family members are encouraged to call police at 240-773-5400.
