PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a teacher in Ahwatukee is accused of having sex with a teenage girl who was one of his students.
Phoenix police say 27-year-old David DePuydt was arrested on suspicion of six counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/1b7zmd5) reports that DePuydt is a photography and world history teacher at Horizon Community Learning Center.
Police investigators say DePuydt and the 15-year-old girl allegedly were in a seven-month "relationship" - from January until last month.
A letter sent Monday to parents of the school's students says DePuydt is suspended without pay pending the results of an ongoing police investigation.
Authorities didn't immediately know if DePuydt has an attorney yet.
