A 34-year-old teacher from the Brandywine School District has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old student.
Rachel L. Holt, a science teacher at Claymont Elementary School, allegedly had sex with the boy 28 times during one week in March, according to New Castle County police spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro.
Holt, who lives in Palladin Club Apartments, has been charged with 21 counts of first degree rape, two counts of providing alcohol to a minor and one count of unlawfully dealing with a minor.
She is being held in Baylor Women's Correctional Institution in lieu of $560,450 bail.
Police say the alleged incidents happened March 24 through March 31 at the woman's home and that a 12-year-old classmate observed at least one of the alleged incidents.
Navarro said police do not yet know whether the suspect, who has taught at four area schools, had sexual encounters with other students.
It's not the fact that we have another teacher involved with a student. It's getting way too common to read these stories.
But 28 times in a week?
That takes deranged to a whole new level.
