IRVING, Texas (AP) - A suburban Dallas high school teacher has been arrested for having an inappropriate relationship with a student 43 years younger than him.

Authorities say 60-year-old Farley Ashford Simon was arrested Feb. 19 and booked into Irving City Jail on two charges of improper relationship between an educator and a student.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, the 17-year-old victim says she had sex with Simon at a park and in a motel room.

Simon was held on a $25,000 bond for each charge and has bonded out.

Police are continuing to investigate Simon but do not believe he was involved with other students.

It was not clear whether Simon had an attorney.
