VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A teacher is facing charges in Vigo County is facing charges for sex crimes involving a student.

The Vigo County Sheriff's Office arrested 35-year-old Gina Richey.

She is facing charges of child seduction.

Richey was a teacher at Rosedale Elementary School in Parke County.

During this time, police say she had a sexual relationship with a Riverton Parke High School student. Deputies believe that relationship had been going on for some time.

The alleged incidents happened in Vigo County.

Earlier this month the Southwest Parke Community School Corporation released a statement. School officials didn't name the teacher at the time but said the teacher resigned.

The corporation also said it fired a teacher's assistant who knew about the situation but didn't report it.

Richey is set to appear in court in Vigo County on Thursday.
