Her husband spotted a Pennsylvania high school teacher having an affair with a teenage girl.
According to the New Castle News, Olivia Ortz, 26, had a relationship with a 17-year-old girl who attended Wilmington High School.
Olivia Ortz was a music and choir teacher at the school 50 miles north of Pittsburgh, and her husband, Cody Ortz, discovered the relationship following a group music vacation to Florida in April and reported it immediately.
Olivia Ortz’s contact with the teen girl began in March, according to the NewCastle News, and lasted until May, even after her husband found out. Olivia Ortz and the youngster allegedly met for physical sexual relations multiple times when Cody Ortz was not at home, according to police.
As an employee of a high school, Cody Ortz was required to report any sexual exploitation, abuse, or misconduct if he suspected it. Immediately after her husband reported Olivia Ortz she was suspended from the job. She later resigned.
Officers searched the Ortzes’ home May 5 and seized Olivia’s iPad and cellphone, Youngstown NBC affiliate WFMJ reported. Despite the seizure, Ortz and the teenager continued communicating using Spotify’s messaging platform, according to Police.
The 17-year-old teen told police that she went to Ortz’s home after her husband found out but only to “comfort”.
Olivia Ortz has been charged with two counts of intercourse/sexual contact with a school student and one count of unlawful contact with a minor for sexual offenses, according to the NewCastle News.
However, she didn’t immediately turn herself in, even singing in a concert on Sunday prior to her arrest on Monday, May 16. She has been released from jail after posting $150,000 bail
