LINCOLN — A former education technician at a Maine public school has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male student.

Authorities say 45-year-old Tammy Larlee of Lincoln has been indicted on four counts of gross sexual assault and four counts of unlawful contact with a minor.

Police Chief Daniel Summer tells WLBZ-TV that the relationship was uncovered while officers were investigating a burglary case involving the boy and Larlee. He says the relationship occurred this summer.

Larlee was an ed-tech for special education students at Mattanawcook Academy in Lincoln.

No arraignment date has been set. It was unclear if Larlee had a lawyer.

Gross sexual assault carries a maximum 30-year prison sentence.
