BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (AP) - Police say an Ohio fourth grade teacher charged with prostitution skipped class after using a school computer to arrange an afternoon tryst at a motel.
Logan County Sheriff's officials say 35-year-old Amber Carter was arrested Tuesday in a motel parking lot in Bellefontaine (behl-FOWN'-tin) in central Ohio.
Police say Carter is charged with misdemeanor prostitution and a felony count of unauthorized use of property, regarding the computer.
Bellefontaine City Schools Superintendent Larry Anderson says school officials are shocked. He says Carter has worked for the district for 13 years and has never received a reprimand.
She has been placed on administrative leave.
A woman answering a phone listing for Amber Carter in
Bellefontaine hung up on a call seeking comment Wednesday.
