Teacher accused of having sex with 2 students

Riverdale Christian Academy administrators have fired English teacher Ashley Dowden following her confession to deputies that she had sex with a 16-year-old student.

The Rev. Preston Thompson tells The Advocate Dowden originally was placed on administrative leave following her arrest Friday.

An affidavit of probable cause says Dowden was arrested after admitting that she had sex with a 16-year-old boy and had exchanged nude photos and explicit text messages.

Deputies also issued Dowden a misdemeanor summons for inappropriate conduct with a student following an 18-year-old's allegations that she went to his house and had sex with him.

She was booked with computer-aided solicitation of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile and carnal knowledge of a juvenile and released on bond.

It was unclear whether Dowden has an attorney.
