HATFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa., March 27 (UPI) -- A former teacher faces charges she allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old boy she met at a church-run school in Pennsylvania where she had taught, police say.

Hatfield Township police Chief Mark A. Toomey said Tuesday township resident Nicole Jacques, 25, was being held on 20 counts each of involuntary sexual intercourse, statutory sexual assault and corruption of a minor, and 10 counts of unlawful contact with a minor, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Jacques was arraigned and sent back to the Montgomery County prison after being unable to post $50,000 cash bail, the newspaper said. Her next court appearance was set for April 4.

Authorities allege Jacques started having sex with the boy -- who she met while she was a teacher at Calvary Baptist School in Lansdale -- at her apartment after she quit her job last year.

The boy's father went to police Feb. 10.
