Va. teacher arrested for having sex with teen
An elementary school teacher in Prince William County has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl he met through Craigslist.
Police arrested 34-year-old Heber Ashbrook of Gainesville on Friday and charged him with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Ashbrook is a fourth-grade teacher at Bennett Elementary School near Manassas.
Police say Ashbrook met the girl after placing a personal ad on the Web site Craigslist.
The alleged victim is not a student at Ashbrook's school. A school system spokeswoman said an administrative investigation has been launched. Schools are on spring break this week so Ashbrook is not in the classroom.
Ashbrook did not immediately return a call to his home on Monday.
