A former Indian school teacher was arrested Tuesday for having sex with a student.

In February, the Indiana State Police received a tip concerning an allegation involving a school employee. Police informed Elwood Community School Corporation administration about the tip following which the staff member, later identified as 24-year-old Erin Orban, was placed on administrative leave. Following an internal investigation, the school board terminated Orban later that month.

According to court documents filed on March 25, the accused, an English teacher, and the 17-year-old student engaged in a sexual relationship in the fall of 2019. During investigation, police spoke to faculty and students who said they suspected that the two were in an inappropriate relationship.

One of the students said the 17-year-old student was always “real flirty” with the teacher. Orban too would “only smile at him and casually tell him to stop.” The student added that she had confronted Orban about a video of the student-teacher duo circulating among students. Other students too told the investigators that they had seen the two outside of the classroom.

The investigators then interviewed the teen who said he and the teacher started messaging each other on Snapchat during which she told him that her husband “treats her bad.” They soon got into a sexual relationship and had sex on four different occasions. The teen told the investigators that they had sex at her home as well as at a hotel in Fishers.  He added that after the fall break, the two stopped having sex and only kissed once.

Following the interview, the investigators obtained records which confirmed that the hotel in Fishers was booked in Orban’s name on Oct. 26. Orban was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with child solicitation and official misconduct.

The incident comes a month after a teacher in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, was arrested for having sex with a 16-year-old high school student. Zachary Dice met three high school girl students during a school activity following which he sent explicit photos to all of them. He then went on to have sex with one of them inside the school premises.
