A North Carolina teacher has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a minor – the same girl that exchanged sext messages with disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner.
Jonathan Busch, 54, was arrested Thursday for encounters that allegedly took place during his time as a social studies teacher at Lake Norman High School in 2016.
The Mooresville man has been charged with two counts of statutory rape of a child over the age of 15 and two counts of indecent liberties with a child under the age of 16.
His accuser, now 18, happens to be the same girl the New York Congressman had a months-long online sexual relationship with, according to WSOCTV.
Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison after his sexting relationship with the 15-year-old was exposed by Dailymail.com.
School officials clarified Friday that the encounters did not take place at Lake Norman High School and the victim did not attend the school.
The alleged encounters took place between June 1 and July 31 2016 and again between September 1 to 21 that same year, when she was 15 according to the Mooresville Tribune.
In light of the allegations, Busch resigned from his teaching position earlier this week.
