GILBERT, AZ (CBS5) -

A 29-year-old teacher at a Gilbert charter school was arrested on suspicion of having sex with a 17-year-old student in his classroom.

Andrew James Teaters was arrested Thursday at his Mesa home by Gilbert police and booked into jail on three felony counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one felony count of sexual abuse.

Teaters is suspected of having sex with the 17-year-old girl in his classroom at Gilbert Early College in late April, according to a police statement. Teaters, a sixth-grade teacher, told police he knew the girl was a minor.

The victim and Teaters told police the one-time sexual relationship was consensual.
