LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — A former Longview high school English teacher has been charged with sexual misconduct with a minor.

The Daily News reports Lindsay Norwood resigned after a police investigation found she had a year-long affair with an 18-year-old student in 2013 and 2014.

Norwood resigned May 18, one day before the district was set to begin its own investigation.

She taught English at Mark Morris High School for 11 years and was 35 when the alleged affair began with a junior in her English class.

The Cowlitz County prosecutor has filed charges of two counts of first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor.

Although the student was not a minor when the affair happened, Norwood can be charged with misconduct with a minor because she allegedly had sex with an enrolled student to whom she was not married.
