NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AP) - A North Las Vegas teacher has been arrested on suspicion of engaging in sexual activity with a student in two hotels and his classroom.

Rancho High teacher Jason Lofthouse was arrested Thursday and booked into the Clark County jail for investigation of sexual misconduct with a student, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and kidnapping.

According to the arrest report, the girl initially denied the relationship, but then admitted to having sex with the 32-year-old Lofthouse at the Cannery and Aliante hotel-casinos in North Las Vegas.

The girl told police she began talking to him early this year and they communicated daily on Twitter. She says the relationship evolved from kissing in his classroom to the teacher picking her up near her home to take her to the hotels.
