An elementary school teacher has been arrested in Florida for allegedly molesting a six-year-old pupil and calling him her boyfriend.
Christina Ruby Sanchez-Rodriguez, 30, a teacher at Evergreen Elementary School in Ocala, allegedly touched the young boy two years ago.
Marion County Police say when the boy told Sanchez-Rodriguez he didn’t like being touched, she would get upset and ignore him in class.

Detectives arrested the teacher last Friday and charged her with lewd and lascivious molestation.
The accusations came to light after the boy became upset upon learning Sanchez-Rodriguez would be teaching one of his family members, according to WFTV.
He then told his family the teacher had touched his genitals on multiple occasions and he wanted to say something so his family member would not have to go through the same trauma, police say.
Sanchez-Rodriguez allegedly told the child she liked him like a boyfriend and made him not tell anyone.
During police interviews, detectives said they learned she would show the young boy special attention at school.
She would allow him to play on her phone under her desk and take him from lunch to her classroom.

Police also said she would buy him gifts and take him to ‘fun places’ like the shopping mall.
The victim was eventually removed from her class because of her special treatment, causing her to quit the school.
Sanchez-Rodriguez is being held on a $25,000 bond in the Marion County Jail.
Police are also concerned she may have other victims after statements giving during interviews.
Marion County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Paul Bloom said: ‘After interviewing this child victim and the families and others, they feel like the potential for more child victims out there.’
Detectives are appealing for anyone who knows information to contact Detective Scala at 352-368-3548.
