CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - A Conway High School teacher has been arrested and accused of having an improper relationship with a student.

Twenty-six-year-old Courtney Ruth Martin of Aynor was arrested earlier this week and has been placed on administrative leave while the case is investigated.

Martin is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. It was not clear if she has a lawyer.

Martin is an English teacher and was placed on leave Oct. 29.

She is also accused of sending improper photos to the student.

The student told police he was involved in a relationship with the teacher.
