GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - Georgetown police have charged an Indian River School District teacher’s aide with having sex with a student.

Twenty-three-year-old Nicole Degirolano of Millsboro was arrested Tuesday and charged with four counts of sexual abuse of a child by a person in a position of trust, authority or supervision. She was arraigned and taken to Sussex Correctional Institute in lieu of $80,000 secured bail.

It was not immediately clear whether Degirolano has an attorney.

Authorities claim she engaged in sexual acts with a 17-year-old male student.

School district spokesman David Maull says the alleged acts occurred while Degirolano worked as an instructional aide at the G.W. Carver Educational Center in a special placement program for English language learners.

Maull says Degirolano, who was assigned this year to Longneck Elementary School, has been placed on unpaid leave.
