Vigo County Teacher Facing Sex Crimes Involving Student

(VIGO CO) – A Vigo County teacher is facing charges of sex crimes involving a teacher.

The Vigo County Sheriff’s Office arrested 35-year-old Gina Richey, on a charge of child seduction.

Richey was a teacher at Rosedale Elementary School in Parke County.

Police say she had a sexual relationship with a Riverton Parke High School student. Deputies believe that relationship had been going on for some time.

Earlier this month the Southwest Parke Community School Corporation released a statement. School officials didn’t name the teacher at the time but stated that teacher resigned.

The corporation also said it fired a teacher’s assistant who knew about the situation but didn’t report it.

Richey is set to appear in court in Vigo County on Thursday.
