MADISON, Conn. (AP) - A high school teacher in Madison has turned herself in on charges she sexually assaulted a male student.

Madison police say they charged 37-year-old town resident Allison Marchese with second-degree sexual assault and impairing the morals of a child Thursday. Authorities say she posted $100,000 bail and was ordered to appear in New Haven Superior Court on Feb. 24.

Marchese is suspended from her job as an English and language arts teacher at Daniel Hand High School. It’s not clear if she has a lawyer. She didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment Thursday.

School Superintendent Thomas Scarice called the allegations “vile and disgusting” and said school officials will be reviewing her employment.

The allegations were reported to police and the Department of Children and Families on Jan. 7.
