Jackson was booked into the Fresno County Jail on four counts of rape, along with single counts of continuous sex abuse of a child, oral copulation with a child, lewd acts with a child, communicating with a child to commit a felony and meeting with a child for lewd purposes. Her bail was set at $215,000 bail.

Detectives, with the assistance of the Central California Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, began an investigation into allegations surrounding a teacher in the Kings Canyon Unified School District, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives reportedly received information about Jackson engaging in a relationship with a 14-year-old boy. Authorities said Jackson and the boy met at the Dunlap Leadership Academy.

"Over the course of an unspecified amount of time, Jackson had several one-on-one meetings with the student and sexual misconduct took place," according to the sheriff's office.

"Kings Canyon Unified School District administrators recently became aware of accusations regarding a Mountain View School teacher," The Kings Canyon Unified School District said in a statement sent to YourCentralValley.com.

"District administrators are working diligently with law enforcement officials who are releasing details regarding their investigation. The safety of students and staff members continues to be a top priority and the district will provide counseling and support services to any students or staff members in need. The district cannot comment on confidential personnel matters."

Authorities said this remains an ongoing investigation and detectives are, “working to determine the locations where sexual abuse may have occurred between Jackson and her now-former student.”

There is a possibility that there are other victims out there who have not reported Jackson’s illegal activity. If you are aware of such behavior, please contact Detective Jose Leon at (559) 600-8205.
