Jessie Lorene Goline, 25, a teacher in Arkansas faces one count of first-degree sexual assault for allegedly sleeping with four separate students.

Jessie Goline, otherwise known as Jessie Lorene Goline, is a former Arkansas high school art teacher who is accused of having inappropriate sexual relationships with four students.

The teacher also reportedly sent the student a photo of herself wearing thong underwear.

Police claim she told them she did have sexual relations with four students, but believed one of them was 18, when he was "way younger than what he had told her".

One of the boys told investigators his teacher began flirting with him during class, telling him "how good he looked".

Goline reportedly admitted to school officials that she had sexual relations with four students between January and April of 2016.

Arkansas Online said she was arrested and questioned about the allegations. She dropped him back off at the school afterwards.

After notifying the superintendent, the school's principal was in the process of notifying the Arkansas Crimes Against Children hotline when Goline came into the office and started crying, the affidavit said. The encounters allegedly took place at her home in Jonesboro last semester.

Three of those students were from the same school where Goline taught and one was from East Poinsett County School District, reports said. She is one of a string of female teachers in the United States to be accused of inappropriate behavior with male students in the past year. That student told authorities that another student also visited Goline's apartment that same night.

According to the newspaper, Goline contacted the students via text message, which, according to court documents, "became more and more sexual in nature". When Wright asked her whether there was anything which she wanted to tell him, she replied: "I'm not going to lose my husband". KAIT-TV reported she was released from custody later in the afternoon. He asked her what was wrong, and it was then he says, that she confessed. "If convicted, Goline could face 10 to 40 years, or life, in prison", Fox News reported.
