Former London ISD high school teacher Amber Prince was arrested Monday for allegedly having an improper relationship with a student, according to the Nueces County Sheriff’s Office.

She is accused of a second degree felony.

According to 41-year old Prince’s LinkedIn, she had been with the district since 2013.

The student involved is a junior and a minor.

Superintendent Judi Whitis with London ISD said she was notified of the relationship on March 18 and Prince was immediately placed on administrative leave and resigned.

“The safety and well-being of our students at London ISD are among our highest priorities,” Whitis told the Caller-Times. “London ISD never takes our responsibility lightly to the students placed into our care. We are saddened and disappointed by the alleged behavior of this former employee. District leadership will continue to work in full cooperation with all involved agencies.”

Assistant chief deputy Daniel Perez said Prince turned herself in, was interviewed and then placed under arrest.

“I don’t know if she confessed or not, but sometime during the interview there was enough information developed to warrant her being arrested,” Perez said.

As of Monday afternoon her bail had not set. Prince will see a judge Tuesday morning to get it determined.
