A married high school teacher is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old boy at her home, in hotels, and in her car, prosecutors claim.
Dayna Chidester, 51, from Illinois, was arrested by FBI agents after being claimed to have had sex with the minor & # 39; 15-20 times & # 39; between September and December 2018.
Chidester, who worked as a consumer and family science at the Reed-Custer High School, appeared at the American courthouse of Dirksen, where prosecutors claimed they had to be detained without ties.
They argued that it poses a flight risk and a danger to the community.

She was released from a $ 1 million bond based on charges of sexual abuse filed in January and resulting from the same investigation. However the state charges were dropped on Wednesday Chicago Tribune reports.
According to a criminal complaint filed on Wednesday, Chidester sent another student at her school a text message saying she was disgusted with her actions with the boy who didn't go to school.
In it she claimed: & # 39; It's terrible. (I) can go to jail. & # 39; She is now also confronted with charges for child pornography in addition to charges for sexual abuse.
Officials in Will County knew in December that Chidester was texting the student about her sexual relationship with the alleged victim.

The FBI claimed that they did not state whether it was the same victim in either case.
Chidester told Will County authorities in January that the two were sexually active twice a week until the end of December 2018, at home, in her car, and in hotels near Oak Brook, in the suburbs.
Officials allegedly interviewed the victim last month and asked him for a photo that Chidester reportedly took of him while the two were in her bedroom, the Chicago Sun Times reports.
