A former teacher at Greer High School was arrested Thursday and charged with sexual battery of a student.


Jessica Ruth Bollinger is charged with sexually battery with a student 16 or 17 years of age, no aggravated force or coercion by the Greer Police Department.


The arrest warrant states Bollinger, 31, committed sexual battery with a 17 year old boy between October of 2012 and June of this year.


The Greer Police Department incident report says Bollinger was called to the school principal's office after the allegation was made. Bollinger told the principal she had sex with the student "at least 5 times" according to the police report, but she said the encounters happened after he graduated.

The principal sent statements from Bollinger and several students who had been told about the relationship to Greer Police.


Bollinger resigned her job on November 22 according to the Greenville County School District during their investigation. She was a choral teacher at the school where she had been employed since 2004.


She was placed on administrative leave two days before her resignation. School district officials say they will report their findings to the South Carolina Department of Education for action regarding Bollinger's teaching certificate.


Bollinger turned herself in to police Thursday.
