Authorities: Michigan teacher charged in sex case gave gun to boy

JACKSON, Mich.-- Authorities say a former Michigan teacher who is accused of having sex with a student also gave him a gun that's believed to have been used in a Jackson shooting.

Jamee Hiatt of Grass Lake was arrested by Jackson police in January after resigning as a teacher in Leslie. The 31-year-old was charged with criminal sexual conduct.

Authorities say charges stemmed from a sexual relationship with a boy that began in 2014 when he was 13.

The Lansing State Journal reports Hiatt told police a gun belonging to her was stolen, but she's charged with filing a false report. Details of the shooting weren't released.

Defense lawyer Phillip Berkemeier says Hiatt "has a lot of things she regrets."

He says she earlier said she was "forthcoming" about the gun.
