A Loudoun County Public School teacher faces a misdemeanor criminal charge after being accused of participating in a relationship with a child that caused or created a mental injury.
Lindsay R. Mages, 28, of Aldie, was arrested Oct. 31. The relationship was described as inappropriate but not sexual.
Under the charge, investigators allege that Mages was a person responsible for the victim’s care and created or inflicted, threatened to create or inflict, or allowed to be created or inflicted upon the child a physical or mental injury by other than accidental means.
Mages was at times responsible for the student outside of school. The relationship with the student occurred between Jan. 1 and Aug. 30, while Mages was a teacher at Discovery Elementary and at Hillside Elementary School.
Mages was held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
