A former southeastern Michigan science teacher is charged with sexual assault after authorities say he had a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old student.
The Macomb County prosecutor's office announced charges Wednesday against Robert Yaek including first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Police and prosecutors say the 25-year-old had a series of sexual encounters with the student between February and May in a rented house in Armada, where he taught, and a school closet. Prosecutors say Yaek also sent explicit photographs of himself to the girl's cellphone.
The Associated Press left a message seeking comment Wednesday at telephone listing for Yaek.
The prosecutor's office says Yaek has resigned from Armada Area Schools. He's due in court this week for arraignment on the charges in 42-1 District Court in Romeo.
