(WYDaily Media)

YORKTOWN — York-Poquoson Sheriff’s office (YPSO) announced the arrest of a Tabb High School Teacher on the morning of June 9.

The teacher, Kristen McAllister, was arrested for two felony counts of taking indecent liberties with a child by a person in a custodial or supervisory relationship and two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

According to YPSO, the investigation began after the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office received a report of an inappropriate relationship between a teacher and students. The investigation is still ongoing.

McAllister is described as a 32-year-old white female who resides in York County.

YPSO says that it has currently identified one victim of crimes that occurred in the latter part of 2021.

“On the evening of Wednesday, June 8, Tabb High School and division administrators were informed of an allegation of unprofessional conduct by a school employee involving a minor. We immediately reported the allegations to the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office and turned the matter over to law enforcement,” York County School Division said in a statement posted to its Facebook page.
