      Teacher arrested on sex charges has certificate suspended

      The South Carolina Board of Education has suspended the teaching certificate of a Pee Dee teacher accused of sleeping with her student.

      Carole Ann Hope is charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor and lewd act with a minor in Darlington and Horry counties.

      She's on administrative paid leave from New Heights Elementary School in Chesterfield County where she was teaching. The state board issued a summary suspension of Hope's certificate Friday afternoon.

      The board says she may pose a threat to the health, safety or welfare of students.

      Officials could move to revoke her her educator certificate if she's found guilty of the charges against her.
