Megan Denman, 29, is a social sciences teacher at the Northeast Fresno campus. She has since been placed on paid administrative leave.

Tuesday evening, Denman's face was covered as she walked out of jail. In a press release, the Fresno Police Department said teacher was booked on one count of sex with a minor and two counts involving sexual acts.

In the statement, Fresno Unified Superintendent Michael Hanson acknowledged cases of inappropriate student/teacher relationships in other parts of the state. He then went on, "Unfortunately, we have learned of an alleged inappropriate relationship between a teacher and student in our own district. Words cannot describe my deep disappointment in this alleged breach of teacher/student relationship," said Hanson.

At this point, Fresno Police have found no evidence of other victims or that any illegal activity happened on campus.
