The 36-year-old was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with three counts of unlawful sexual relations.

Leavenworth County prosecutors allege Young had consensual sexual intercourse with one of her students between August 2009 and June 2010.

Though the victim was of legal age of consent for Kansas, it is still illegal for teachers to have "sexual relations" with students at their schools, according to the Leavenworth Times.

Young resigned in April from her job as an English teacher and volleyball coach at Pleasant Ridge High School in Easton, Kan.

She started working for the Easton school district in August 2009.
