    Teacher Turns Self In Amid Sex Allegation

    A teacher from the Austin area surrendered to Fort Worth police on Monday amid allegations of an improper relationship with a student.

    According to the affidavit, Christina McCann, 39, had oral sex and intercourse with an 18-year-old male student while on a field trip to Fort Worth last February.

    Over the weekend of Feb. 26, McCann and five students drove to Fort Worth to take part in a DECA event, a marketing and business competition.

    While at their hotel, the affidavit said the students and teacher began drinking beer brought by the teacher. After that, McCann and the student retired to another room where the alleged incidents took place.

    Administration at Lake Travis High School began investigating after hearing that McCann brought beer on the trip for the students.  During that investigation, they learned of the alleged inappropriate relationship between the educator and student.

    When investigators in the Travis County Sheriff's Department learned the alleged incident took place in Fort Worth, the Fort Worth Police Department was brought in conduct a follow-up investigation.

    McCann posted a $10,000 bond Monday and was released.
