(Scroll down for video) A librarian is in trouble with the law after she confessed to sleeping with a student.

37-year-old Elizabeth Kinkade, was a librarian at Tonasket High School in Washington, when she began having sex with an 18-year-old student.

Police were called to the Kinkade family home after the husband grabbed his gun and began shooting in the air.

Police believe that he fired the shots after his wife allegedly confessed to sleeping with the boy.

When police learned of the affair between the librarian and the student, they arrested the woman.

The age of consent in Washington is actually 16 years old. Police said that although the student is not a minor, the law of consent changes when it comes to school employees and students.

Superintendent Paul Turner said that the school board held a special meeting and voted to immediately fire Kinkade from her position at the school.
