A former teacher and local church choir director was taken into custody after accusations surfaced of a relationship with a student.

Sydney Sewell, 25, faces sexual assault charges stemming from a sexual relationship with a student while serving as chorus teacher at Central High School in Carrollton, according to Carroll County sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Brad Robinson.

Sewell, who also served as choir director at Cornerstone Methodist Church in Newnan, was later released a $5,000 bond and resigned from her position at Central High School.

School officials received a tip March 22 that the 25-year-old Carroll County resident had sexual contact with the 16-year-old male student.
