A Wicomico High School teacher accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student posted bond Thursday.

Lynn Michelle Jensen, 36, was jailed without bond late Wednesday, May 17, after her arrest on charges of sex abuse to a minor and having intercourse with a minor.

The minor in both charges was a student at Wicomico High School at the time of the offenses, according to court documents.

Jensen, who lives in Hebron, was placed on administrative leave April 27 after school officials were notified of pending charges.

She is a five-year educator in the school district, having joined the Wicomico Board of Education in 2012, according to the district. 

Court documents say the offenses occurred Friday, April 21 at a house in Salisbury. 

Jensen's initial court appearance and bond review were by video from the county jail Thursday morning, appearing before Wicomico Circuit Court Judge Leah Seaton.

If convicted, Jensen could spend a total of 26 years in prison.

School administration and school district officials have urged people with information related to the case to contact the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.
