    A 32-year-old former color guard instructor at Reading Senior High School is facing charges after she allegedly had an affair with an underage student that last months, according to police.

    Jennifer Wolfe was arrested Thursday following an investigation into sex abuse claims,

    Police say that a 17-year-old band member was sexually assaulted by Wolfe from October 2011 through April of the following year.

    Wolfe and the student spoke on the phone before they began meeting up, according to a press release sent by the Berks County District Attorney's Office.

    Wolfe was the color guard instructor at Reading High from 2011 to 2013.
