A 24-year-old teacher could be deported after she was charged with molesting a 13-year-old student in class

Hephzibah, GA – A middle school teacher faces deportation after she was arrested on a child molestation charge.

Rumah Byrapaka, 24, was given a $15,000 bond on Tuesday for the child molestation charge and another $10,000 bond on another charge of enticing a child for indecent purposes, according to the Augusta Chronicle.

The district attorney didn’t oppose the bond, but the family of the male 13-year-old victim did.

If Byrapaka posts bond, she would be released from the Charles B. Webster Detention Center but then would be put in a federal detention center on an immigration hold, according to the Augusta Chronicle.

It's unclear what her home country is.

The district attorney’s office stated that there would be more charges filed against Byrapaka, who is not a U.S. citizen and has a student visa.

The Augusta Chronicle reported that Byrapaka sent nude photos and explicit messages to the alleged victim via Instragram. She also touched the 13-year-old in an indecent manner and kissed the boy on school grounds, according to police.

Prosecutors have said the alleged victim was in love with his teacher and sneaked out of his home to meet Byrapaka.

Judge Scott Allen ruled that Byrapaka could have no contact with the 13-year-old boy or any contact with anyone under the age of 18.

The judge also ruled that Byrapaka could not teach at any school, the Augusta Chronicle reported. He ruled that Byrapaka would have to notify the court if she was released from federal custody and surrender her passport to the district attorney’s office.

The school district placed Byrapaka on administrative leave with pay, according to the Augusta Chronicle. She taught physical science and social studies at the school, according to the New York Post.

“We will continue to cooperate with the [Richmond County Sheriff’s Office] as the investigation progresses,” a school district spokeswoman said, according to WRDW.

Why is a non citizen teaching school here? We should be educating American citizens for American jobs. Foreigners come here & take away college seats and jobs that Americans need & want.

When I was teaching....fingerprinting, nationality, and American citizenship were prerequisites. Course, now teachers are paid so little to "teach, educate, moralize and defend themselves" that it is definitely hard to FIND teachers willing to comply with the personal affronts to mind and body. Many Americans would not put up with the "tactics" that students use to abuse..and that parents do not restrict!

To all you teachers out there who believe you can get away with this type of crime, you won't. Kids run their mouths and will brag to their friends if they're banging the teacher. Guaranteed! Keep your sick fantasies to yourself and don't ruin some kids life because of your perversions.

How could she be teaching if she's here on a Student Visa? She had to have lied on her application, which is grounds for dismissal. And, why is she suspended with pay? This school board needs to up its game regarding checking an applicant's background and wait on hiring until after everything checks out.

She "could be" deported? What does that mean?? It should be a given. What? We're now going to allow pedophiles asylum in our country? We don't have enough problems with our own pedophiles, now we have to import them??

So it was an "accident" reference the sexual contact? I bet if the offense had not been brought to light when it initially was, the "relationship" would have escalated to intercourse. What would defense have been then? "Oh, his penis accidentally slipped into my vagina."

Blame the school district. What the hell kind of background investigations are they doing if they allow a foreign national on a student visa to teach in one of their schools? That shows an extreme indifference to student safety.

And why is it "unclear" what her home country is? Are there several?

Ok, the kid is an idiot and so it the kids dad. If I was his dad I’d be giving high fives to the son. The kid has this primo hottie and he’s going to go tell his parents. There’s got to be something wrong with that kid. I would keep tapping that and make sure she taught me more than math

He's only 13. That's child abuse in every state. His first sexual experience should be with someone close to his own age, not an adult predator.
