(Scroll down for video) A teacher in Missouri, was arrested after having a relationship with her student.

The high school teacher was charged with statutory sodomy and attempted enticement of a child.

The teacher, 46-year-old Johanna Feazell, had a crush on her student, who is 30 years her junior.

Feazell was an English and Language Arts teacher for eighth grade in the Marshfield School District, for the past 15 years. She also has coached girls basketball for some time.

A police detective began investigating Feazell, after the girl’s mother said she found a hidden cell phone in the room of her daughter.

The only contact on the phone was the teacher and it was labeled “sweetheart.” The girl admitted to having a relationship with the teacher for several years.

The girl told the detective that Feazell, gave her the phone so they could have voice conversations and secretly text.

The detective learned that Marshfield school administrators had issued notices of deficiency to Feazell twice after she was caught texting and writing letters to the girl.

The detective met with Feazell at school, and said that she admitted buying the phone for the girl. The detective took the phone as part of the investigation.

The girl gave the detective the security access code for the phone, and said that some of the text messages in it were about the sexual encounter the girl had with Feazell at the teacher’s home.

Feazell was arrested and her bail was set at $100,000.
