A Fresno-based teacher was apprehended Friday on the grounds of inflicting continual sexual abuse on a 14-year old student, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Crime Unit revealed.

The accused identified as Krystal Jackson faces rape charges along with other felonies. The 39-year-old allegedly engaged in continuous sexual abuse of the minor boy, after the two met at the Dunlap Leadership Academy.

According to PEOPLE, Jackson often conducted one-on-one meetings with the teenager and seized those opportunities to carry out multiple instances of sexual misconduct. The Mountain View Independent School teacher has been booked on four counts of rape, single counts of continuous sex abuse of minor, oral copulation with a child, lewd acts with a child, communicating with a child to commit a felony, and meeting with a child for lewd purposes.

The Reedley-based school is part of the Kings Canyon Unified School District.

Jackson is currently lodged in the Fresno County Jail with her bail set at $215,000. It is yet to be established whether she’s managed to find an attorney to speak on her behalf.

A deeper probe into the incident began Friday after the County Sheriff’s officials were alerted about Jackson’s monstrous ways. The sex crimes detectives dug deeper into the disturbing case with the assistance of the Central California Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC), Fox 26News reported.

The Kings Canyon Unified School District released a statement to YourCentralValley.com, the website for the local CBS affiliate, but reportedly refused to comment on study protocols. The statement reads, “Kings Canyon Unified School District administrators recently became aware of accusations regarding a Mountain View School teacher/District administrators are working diligently with law enforcement officials who are releasing details regarding their investigation.”

The district reiterated that the safety of the students and staff members will remain a top priority. The official body assured that due efforts were being made to ensure counseling and support services were offered to any students or staff members to avail in times of duress.

The District, however, refrained from divulging details pertaining to confidential personnel matters, and urged the public to come forward and assist them in the ongoing investigations, should they have come across any information about Jackson or other potential victims. The official statement requested those with useful and relevant information to get in touch with Detective Jose Leon at (559) 600-8205.
