Kayla Sprinkles (Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office)

A North Carolina teacher has been arrested and accused of having sexual activity with a teen student.

Kayla Sprinkles, 26, of Hayesville was arrested on June 7th and she faces sexual assault charges.

The investigation began “on or about March 26,” the sheriff’s office said. Investigators began looking into reports that Sprinkles had engaged in sex acts with a student while working as a high school teacher in the Cherokee County Schools System.

The sheriff’s office said the multiple students were interviewed during the investigation and the HAVEN Child Advocacy Center assisted in some of the interviews because of the young ages of the individuals interviewed.

On June 4, a grand jury handed down a five-count indictment for sex activity with a student. Source
