Kameelah Kareem, 41, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with second-degree counts of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

Investigators say the pair had interactions outside of school on various dates between November 2019 and March 2020.
Kareem was released after a hearing on Wednesday, prosecutors said. The case will be presented to a grand jury at a later date.
