HENRICO, Va. (AP) - A Virginia teacher who is accused of having sex with a teenager has been arrested.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports 31-year-old Ashley Leigh Lewis Weber was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of having consensual intercourse with a child age 15 or older and one count of using a communications device to propose sex.
