BOTTINEAU, N.D. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities are accusing a North Dakota high school science teacher of corruption of a minor.

The Bottineau County Sheriff’s Department says 24-year-old Marissa Deslauriers is facing one felony count of corruption or solicitation of a minor.

The Bottineau woman made her initial court appearance Tuesday. Northeast Judicial District Judge Michael Sturdevant set her bond at $10,000.

Authorities say Deslauriers is a teacher in the Bottineau Public Schools system. Additional details in the case, including whether the minor involved was Deslauriers’s student, were not immediately released.

Active superintendent Brian Palmer did not immediately return a call seeking comment Tuesday.

Court records do not list an attorney who could comment on behalf of Deslauriers. A hearing in her case is scheduled for January.
