CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A former Spanish teacher at Capital High School has told a judge she did not have a sexual relationship with an underage male student in 2013.

The Charleston Gazette (https://bit.ly/1RmCmaz ) reports 31-year-old Michelle Elaine Ball of St. Albans pleaded not guilty yesterday in Kanawha Circuit Court. Ball was suspended without pay from her job two years ago when police charged her.

Prosecutors say Ball began smoking marijuana with the teenager and would take him to the movies and on trips. They also say the relationship eventually turned sexual.

Ball is charged with sexual abuse by a parent, guardian, custodian or person in a position of trust. The initial charge against her was dropped on a technicality, but Ball was indicted earlier this month on the new charge.
