a former high school teacher in idaho was arrested during a traffic stop and accused of raping the boy behind the wheel == because she was too intoxicated to drive.
jessica lawson, 36, and the teenage student were pulled over earlier this month when police noticed a taillight was out.

the boy allegedly told police he was driving because lawson was “too drunk to drive,” according to court documents obtained by the idaho state journal .

police claim the boy admitted to having marijuana, the report stated.
later that day, police received a 911 call from the boy’s parents, who accused lawson, a former teacher at south fremont high school in st. anthony, of picking up their son around 11 p.m. the previous night and taking him to her home.
the teen reportedly told his parents that lawson got drunk and got high on marijuana before they had sex, and later told police the same thing during an interview.
