A 35-year-old Palmdale woman admitted to authorities after her arrest on Tuesday that she had sex multiple times with a 13-year-old boy whom she was tutoring.Holly Polson, a teacher's aide at Shadow Hills Middle School, had intercourse with a student she was supposedly tutoring multiple times in an empty classroom over the past couple weeks.

"She admitted to several instances of having sexual intercourse with the victim on school grounds," said Sgt. Brian Hudson of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

During the past month, the suspect developed feelings for the victim. Over the past two weeks, the victim and suspect have engaged in several acts of sexual intercourse while in a vacant classroom on the school campus. The acts were discovered when a relative of the victim discovered inappropriate text messages from the suspect on the victim’s cell phone.

Polson was booked at Palmdale Sheriff’s Station on four felony counts of Lewd Acts with a Child. Her bail is set at $100,000.00
