A Norristown teacher from Bucks County who was arrested in May on charges she had a sexual relationship with her 14-year-old student waived her preliminary hearing Tuesday, court records show.
Middle school math teacher Jessica Streeper, 33, of Buckingham Township, will face trial in Montgomery County.
Streeper, an eighth-grade math teacher at Eisenhower Middle School, faces charges of institutional sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors and related charges.
Streeper, free on $10,000 bail, is barred from the school and prohibited from having any unsupervised contact with minors other than her own children.
The case came to light May 19, when the Norristown Police Department received an anonymous tip that an eighth-grade teacher at Eisenhower was involved in an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student. An investigation led them to Streeper's relationship with the student, police said.
Streeper and the boy communicated regularly by text message, and a forensic examination of the victim's phone showed that the messages were sexual in nature, the District Attorney's Office said.
On several occasions, Streeper picked the
boy up at his Norristown home and they had sex in her car, police said. On
multiple occasions she brought him to her Doylestown home, where they had sex,
