A newlywed high school teacher is facing hard time after allegedly escaping the bonds of matrimony directly into the arms of a teen student.

Jessica Acker, 23, a high school teacher at Bryant High School in Cottondale, Alabama was arrested and charged with "engaging in a sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student under the age of 19" when rumors of an inappropriate relationship with one of her students reached school officials this week.

Police interviewed both parties and issued a warrant for Acker's arrest. The former teacher, who was married earlier this year, according to the Daily Mail, turned herself in Friday before posting bail.

Although student was 18, Acker was charged under an Alabama law prohibiting consensual sex acts between teachers and students younger than 19.
