Rachelle Gendron, a sex ed teacher, was indicted in the rape of a 14-year-old student after prosecutors accused the 27-year-old former instructor at a Massachusetts high school of enticing the boy.

Gendron, of Fitchburg, Mass., was charged Friday with enticement of a child under 16-years-old and five counts of rape aggravated by age difference, the Sentinel & Enterprise reported.

Prosecutors say Gendron and the boy had sex three times in October 2012, once in January and once again in March. Investigators also discovered explicit texts and photos on the boy's cell phone of the teacher in "various states of undress with genitals and breasts exposed," according to the indictment.

A sex education and health teacher at Fitchburg's North Central Charter Essential School for the past five years, Gendron was fired and ordered to have no contact with children under 16 pending the outcome of the case.

"The North Central Charter Essential School's highest priority is the safety and well-being of our students, and we are both shocked and concerned by the allegations against the former employee in question," the school said in a statement. "Upon first learning of those allegations, we took prompt and appropriate action consistent with the best interests of our students, which included swiftly terminating the individual and fully cooperating with law enforcement authorities investigating this matter."

Gendron, who has no prior criminal record, appeared in court crying on Friday and pleaded not guilty to all charges. Her bail was set at $2,000 and she faces a minimum of 10 years in prison if found guilty.
