PAYSON, Utah (AP) - A Payson junior high school secretary has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a teenage boy.
Montreia Barney of Spanish Fork was charged with a third-degree felony count of unlawful sexual conduct with a 16- or 17-year-old.
Prosecutors say Barney was working at Mt. Nebo Jr. High School in 2010 when she befriended a boy who returned to his former school to visit friends.
Barney is accused of engaging in sex acts with him outside a Mormon church and in phone sex. At the time, Barney was 47 and the student was a 16-year-old high school student.
Police say the allegations recently came to light when the boy told a church leader about the relationship.
Barney currently is listed as finance secretary on the Mt. Nebo website.
