(Scroll down for video) A school employee was arrested after she allegedly attempted to have sex with a 16-year-old student.

40-year-old Emily Feeney of Chester County, Pennsylvania, is a married woman, who worked as a swim coach and Director of College Counseling at a private school.

During her two years on her job at the all boys high school, she allegedly pursued a boy and attempted to have sex with him.

Feeney turned herself in to police to face serious charges of sexual assault after her desperate attempts to convince the student to sleep with her failed.

Feeney allegedly tried to seduce the 16-year-old student, who was in her swimming class, with a variety of promises, including the promise to help him secure the admission to the Harvard University.

According to the Chester County district attorney, Feeney sent the boy “highly sexualized” text messages, along with photographs of herself in various states of undress.

According to police, the victim repeatedly said that he was not interested in a relationship with her. In one text message, the student said: “I’m not interested in you, end of story. I’m 16. I’m not into you.”

However, the grown woman would not take no for an answer. She is accused of kissing the student one time and she sent him messages saying: “I adore you, always have, always will,” and “If you ever cared about me, please don’t shut me out. It’s too painful.”

After he was unable to get the woman to stop harassing him, the student told his parents about it. Police were called and police reviewed hundreds of texts messages and emails between the school employee and the teen.

The school said that Feeney was fired as soon as they learned of the allegations.
