Fake social media account feigned relationship between middle school employee, student

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - An employee at a Memphis middle school was removed from the school after being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student, according to Memphis Police Department.

However, police now say the allegations against the Geeter Middle School employee were false.

An officer responded to a complaint Monday at the school regarding an inappropriate relationship that may have occurred between a student and an employee.

Shelby County Schools released the following statement on the issue:

We take all reports related to the safety and security of our students very seriously. The allegations were immediately reported to authorities, and the employee in question has been removed from the school pending the results of an investigation in accordance with standard District procedures.

Police now said a fake social media account was created to fake the sexual relationship between an employee and student.

Police said the account was not created by the alleged victim, but rather someone else, and the acts feigned in the social media account never actually happened.
