Owen was arrested on April 11, after Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputies revealed that Owen had a sexual encounter with a male student one week prior to the arrest, where the two decided to meet off-campus, deputies said.
Deputies also discovered the teacher had been communicating with the student through personal text messages several weeks prior to the incident.
Owen will have to enter a sex offender treatment program while incarcerated and must register as a sexual predator upon her release from jail.
