Davis High School officials fired Cassandra White, 34, the day after she went to the courthouse with a male sophomore to apply for the license, according to news station KFOR.
“The district is currently cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation of these allegations,” the school said Friday to news station KTEN. “The teacher in question is no longer employed by Davis Schools.”
Court records revealed that the teen’s dad signed off on the marriage to the teacher Wednesday at Cleveland County Courthouse. Under state law, a 16-year-old can get married with a parent’s consent.
No arrests have been made, but rape charges could be filed against White if she was involved in a sexual relationship with the teen. It is illegal for a teacher to have sex with a student enrolled in the same school system, according to KFOR.
Authorities said they launched an investigation two weeks ago into misconduct allegations involving the teacher.
“We started hearing rumors around the first of December of a possible inappropriate relationship between a teacher and student,” Davis Police Chief Dan Cooper told KFOR.
