CABARRUS COUNTY, N.C. -- A 23-year-old female teacher was arrested and charged Wednesday for taking indecent liberties with a student.

The Concord Police Department said they launched an investigation after they were notified of a "potential inappropriate consensual relationship" between a student and teacher at Cox Mill High School.

Based on further investigations, authorities corroborated the allegations that 23-year-old Katherine Ross Ridenhour was engaged in a relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Ridenhour was charged and taken to the Cabarrus County Magistrate where she received a written promise to appear in court.
