    FRANCONIA, Va. -- A school teacher was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a 15-year-old boy, after the two were found together in a car in the early morning hours Sunday, Fairfax County police said.

    Officers arrested 27-year-old Valerie Roesler, of Alexandria, after finding her with the boy in a Mitsubishi Lancer parked on Gunston Hill Lane, police said.

    The boy was away from his home without his parents' knowledge, officials said.

    Roesler taught at Hayfield Secondary School but has been suspended without pay. She met the boy earlier this year. He is not a student in the Fairfax County Public Schools system.

    Roesler and the boy agreed to meet in the parking lot where they were caught. She was drunk, but he was not, police said. It does not appear that she gave the boy any alcohol.

    Roesler faces charges of public drunkenness and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The investigation is ongoing and more charges could come.
