FORT WORTH — A Fort Worth teacher is accused of having sex with a 16-year-old student.

Police took Jennifer Riojas into custody on Wednesday. The 25-year-old taught 9th grade at Carter-Riverside High School before resigning last month.

She had a DWI case in Denton on her record, but never anything as serious as this.

An arrest warrant states that Riojas visited the victim while he was hospitalized in Fort Worth last December and had sex with him in a hospital room.

The warrant also alleges that Riojas drove the sophomore student to "different hotels located by N.E. Mall in the Mid-Cities" for the purpose of having sexual intercourse in December and January.

The victim reported the crime last month.

Riojas is charged with sexual assault of a child. Bond was set at $20,000.
