RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A 39-year-old female paraprofessional at Rapid City High School has been fired and faces a charge of having an illegal relationship with a male student.

Police said Michelle Felkey was arrested late Tuesday on charges of soliciting a minor and disseminating harmful material to a minor.

KOTA television reports that Felkey appeared in magistrate court Wednesday via closed-circuit television from the Pennington County Jail. She will have the opportunity to enter a plea at a preliminary hearing set for next Friday.

Attorney information for Felkey was not immediately available.

Felkey was fired Monday from Rapid City High School, which is an alternative school. School system Superintendent Tim Mitchell said in a statement Tuesday that the system “will not tolerate behaviors that compromise the safety of our children.”
