A spokesman for the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office in Carrollton, Alabama, tells PEOPLE that James Franklin Parker, 32, a math teacher and basketball and football coach at Pickens Academy, was charged with one count of having sex with a student under the age of 19. He is accused of having sex with a former female student, the spokesman says.
His wife, Charli Jones Parker, 30, was arrested on 11 counts of the exact same charge just two days earlier. She teaches computer classes and gym, according to information obtained from the school’s website. Charli Parker allegedly had sex with one of the school’s male pupils, according to the spokesman.
Police confirm the arrests were the result of an ongoing investigation that could yield additional charges. The husband’s criminal case is separate and unrelated to his wife’s charges, the spokesman says.
It was unclear Thursday if either had retained legal counsel.
Parker remains in police custody without bail while his wife has been freed after posting an unspecified bond amount, online records indicate.
