Teacher accused of sex with teen going to court

An Elizabeth High School teacher accused of having sex with a 17-year-old student during a football road trip last fall faces a preliminary hearing this afternoon in Garfield County District Court.

Darcie Esson, 33, who remains free on $25,000 bond, is charged with two counts of sexual assault on a person age 15 to 17 while in a position of trust and one count of sexual assault in a position of trust as a pattern of abuse.

Esson, an English teacher, was placed on administrative leave from the Elizabeth C-1 School District, where officials called authorities after learning that a football player had been bragging about having sex with her.
