CURRITUCK COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) - A Currituck County High School teacher is accused of having sexual relations with two male students.
A grand jury indicted 44-year-old Christina Corbo July 23 on five counts of sexual activity by a custodian. She was arrested July 27 and released on a $10,000 secured bond.
The investigation began June 8 when someone from the Currituck County school system contacted the Sheriff's Office to report the alleged crime. Detectives immediately began looking into the case.
Because of the nature of this investigation, no additional information will be released by the Sheriff's Office, according to spokeswoman Lindsay Voorhees.
As of July 30 Corbo was still listed as a teacher on the Currituck County High School website. According to her faculty page, Corbo has taught at the school for four years. She previously taught at Moyock Middle School and Camden County High School.
"We can not, however, comment on any personnel matter except to say that we accepted the resignation of
Christina Corbo on June 13, 2012," Assistant Superintendent of Currituck County Schools Sandy Kinzel said in a statement.
