Prince William County police say 27-year-old Tina Marie Amato of Fredericksburg has been charged with two counts of indecent liberties by a custodian, crimes against nature and use of a communications system to facilitate certain offenses.

Ken Blackstone, a spokesman for the Prince William school system, says Amato has been a full-time teacher at Gar-Field High School since 2008.

Amato was arrested after another teacher confiscated the cellphone of a male student in an unrelated incident and discovered messages that prompted that teacher to call police.

County Police Officer Jonathan Perok says an investigation revealed Amato and the boy had been having a relationship for about a year.
