Henrico teacher charged with having sex with minor

HENRICO COUNTY, (WRIC) — Authorities have charged a teacher at Henrico County’s Douglas Freeman High School with having sex with a minor.

Henrico Police say they took a report on June 12 for an inappropriate relationship between a juvenile and Freeman High School history teacher, Ashley Leigh-Lewis Weber.

The investigation led to Weber being charged with two counts of having consensual sexual intercourse with a child 15+ years old and one count of using a communication device to propose sex.

A spokesperson for Henrico County Public Schools sent 8News the following statement:

We’re aware of the charges, but at this time it would be inappropriate to comment further. Ms. Weber is not a year-round employee, and we have few details about the allegations other than what has been publicly reported. Ms. Weber has been employed with us since August of 2009, most recently as a history teacher at Freeman High School and, before that, at Tucker High School.”
