Learning Disabilities Teacher Arrested On Charges She Had Sexual Relationship With Student

Vienna, VA – A special education teacher at James Madison High School in Virginia has been arrested and held without bond on multiple charges after she was accused of carrying on a sexual relationship with a student.

The high school’s administration notified the Fairfax County Police Department about the allegations on April 12 after the student disclosed the inappropriate sexual relationship to someone at the school, WTTG reported.

Fairfax County police arrested 33-year-old Allieh Kheradmand, of Reston, on April 13.

Investigators said the victim claimed that Kheradmand, a special education teacher, had been sexually involved with the student over the past several months, WTTG reported.

The special education teacher has been charged with four felony counts of indecent liberties by a custodian.

Kheradmand was held without bond, according to WTTG.

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) confirmed that the learning disabilities teacher has been teaching in its school system since 2016.

The school district sent out a letter to the parents, students, and employees after Kheradmand was arrested that announced the teacher had been suspended, WJLA reported.

“We need to inform you that Fairfax County police have announced that a teacher at Madison High School has been arrested and charged with four counts of indecent liberties by a custodian of a student. The employee has been placed on administrative leave,” the letter read.

“In Madison and across FCPS, our primary responsibility is the safety and security of everyone who enters our doors. This is something we take very seriously,” the letter continued. “As educators, we are entrusted with the wellbeing of the children in our care every day. It deeply affects us when someone appears to have broken that trust.”

The letter went on to ask parents to contact the main office if they had any specific concerns about their own student, WJLA reported.

Fairfax County police said the incident continues to be under investigation by their Major Crimes Bureau and asked that anyone with additional information contact investigators at 703-246-7800, option 3.
