A Riverside high school teacher was arrested last week after authorities discovered that she was having a months-long inappropriate relationship with a student.
Riverside detectives say that a female student’s mother contacted law enforcement police and reported the relationship. Thirty-two-year-old Camryn Zelinger Corona, was taken into custody at Encore High School for the Arts. She was booked on suspicion of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor and annoying or molesting a child under 18, according to a statement from the Riverside Police Department.
The Riverside Police Department’s Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit started an investigation after the female student told officers of her relationship with Zelinger.
“The investigation revealed inappropriate physical contact and communications between the teacher and student,” the news release said, adding that school officials “fully cooperated” with authorities.
When asked if there were text messages exchanged between the student and Zelinger, Officer Ryan Railsback said: “It appears so, that was one of the ways that they communicated. The investigation determined that was a crime along with the physical contact that the teacher made against the student.”
Zelinger posted bail and was released. The Riverside Police Department said that Zelinger is no longer employed by the school.
