Former Glencliff High School math teacher Kyra Bryant surrendered to police Friday evening after a grand jury indicted her on four counts of statutory rape, stemming from an alleged relationship with a 17-year-old female student.
Metro police allege that Bryant, 29, developed a relationship with the teenager, who was a student in Bryant’s class, last fall. The City Paper first reported the alleged relationship last month.
In November, Bryant is alleged to have engaged in sexual contact with the victim at the teenager’s home while the girl’s parents were at work and also in Bryant’s classroom during school hours.
The police investigation began Feb. 8 after Glencliff officials received an anonymous letter indicating that there was a sexual relationship between Bryant and the victim.
Bryant, of 19th Avenue South, resigned from her teaching position shortly after the investigation began.
