High school secretary accused of having sex with students

SHELBY, N.C. (AP) — A Cleveland County high school secretary has been charged with having sex with two students.

The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office tells news outlets that 32-year-old Laura Bowling is charged with five counts of sexual activity with a student. She turned herself in to authorities Thursday.

Deputies say they received a call July 29 from the mother of a Crest High School student who said she noticed cellphone pictures and text messages from Bowling which she felt were inappropriate.

Sheriff Alan Norman says they spoke with the student and Bowling, who both admitted to having a sexual relationship over the last two months.

During the investigation, authorities say they also discovered that Bowling had a sexual relationship with another student at the school.

It isn’t clear if Bowling has an attorney.
