RADNOR TWP., PA (WTXF) - Authorities in Radnor Township say they have arrested and charged a teacher after they say she was sexually involved with a student.
28-year-old Nina Scott, a former teacher at The Village, a court ordered child care facility on the 400 block of Roberts Road is facing several charges in connection with the incident.
Investigators say they received word of a possible relationship between Scott and a juvenile female victim back in October 2016, and later learned that Scott was the victim's teacher.
A journal that belonged to the victim was discovered at the school along with letters from Scott that were written to the victim. In the letters, authorities say Scott refers to the victim as "her girlfriend" and made references to being in her bed with the student.
Scott also allegedly referred to her two-year-old daughter as "their daughter."
Detectives interviewed the victim regarding the matter, and say the student admitted Scott was her teacher when she was a resident at The Village, but denied any type of physical and romantic relationship.
Nina Scott was later interviewed by detectives and also denied any type of personal relationship. In a later interview, police say Scott admitted to having sexual contact with the student, and the first incident occurred back in February 2016. Investigators say they have reason to believe some alleged incidents did occur on school property.
The student later spoke with police and admitted to multiple sexual encounters with Scott.
Scott is facing several charges including 34 counts of institutional sexual assault of a minor, and corruption of minors.
The Village received the following statement regarding the charges:
"We received notification of an allegation of abuse against one of our staff members in October 2016 related to a former resident of our program. It was our understanding that the alleged incident did not occur on our property. The staff member’s employment was immediately suspended at that time. In December we were notified of pending criminal charges at which time the staff member’s employment was formally terminated. We fully cooperated with outside law enforcement as they proceeded with this investigation.”
