MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A teacher arrested on sex charges involving teenage boys has been fired by the Shelby County school board.
Board members voted unanimously on Thursday to terminate physical education teacher Stacy Hopkins from her job at Arlington High School.
The 28-year-old Hopkins has been charged by the Shelby County Sheriff's Office with three counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and two counts of soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor.
Court records show the three male students are now 16, 17 and 18 years old.
Hopkins is free on bond. Her next court appearance is scheduled for June 2.
