Teacher Arrested For Sexual Misconduct For Alleged Relationship With 17-Year-Old

Isabella Bowman, a 22-year-old teacher from Dr. Daniel Bright Elementary School in Cottonwood, Arizona, has been arrested for suspicion of sexual conduct with a minor. According to the Cottonwood Police Department, Bowman was having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old. The kid, however, was not a student at the Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District and the relationship initially began outside of a school setting.
“We do not believe there are any other victims at this time, however, this investigation is still ongoing,” said Detective Sergeant Chad Sinn, of the Cottonwood Police Department, in a press release via azcentral.com.
Bowman has been placed on administrative leave.
It is believed that Bowman also had alleged possession of marijuana along with the sexual misconduct allegations.
“COCSD is committed to the safety of all students and expects all staff to adhere to the highest ethical practices and conduct when it comes to our community’s children,” the district announced in a statement. “We must all work together, staff, students, families and community to provide a safe learning environment for children to learn, grow and thrive.”
An investigation is ongoing.
