Female Algebra Teacher, 28, Accused of Sex With Boy, 16, Flees NJ for FLA - Jennalin Garcia-Calle

Another new twist on the female teacher sex scandal story! You know how celebrities try to avoid jail time for their crimes by checking into some kind of re-hab facility (we're looking at you here Lindsay) after doing something awful? Well, it looks like teachers have now caught on to that trend. . . but in this case, it didn't work.
A 28-year-old algebra teacher at a New Jersey high school has been arrested in Florida after police say she had sex with her 16-year-old student several times in her classroom and then bolted town. U.S. Marshals arrested Jennalin Garcia-Calle, a teacher at Plainfield High School, near Newark, on Thursday in Davie, Florida and charged her with second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree child abuse. Garcia-Calle allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old male student of hers at least three times inside classrooms at the school where she taught. The relationship began in December, according to authorities, who became aware of the situation after the student told family members and friends about what had happened. 
When Garcia-Calle realized that others had been made aware of the relationship, she apparently fled south, heading for Florida, where she checked herself into a rehabilitation center that focuses on psychiatric and sexual impulsivity issues.  She also allegedly sent the student text messages, demanding that he get rid of certain pieces of evidence from their relationship.
