COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

An arrest warrant says a Midlands high school teacher and the student she is accused of having a sexual relationship with admitted to the affair.

Columbia Police on Friday charged Kinsley Wentzky, 34, of Forest Acres with sexual battery with a student 16 or 17 years of age with no aggravated force or coercion.

According to investigators, Wentzky allegedly engaged in sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old male student at a Columbia home on several occasions.

The arrest warrant says both Wentzky and the student gave sworn statements admitting to an "intimate" relationship. The warrant says they two engaged in sexual activity in May of 2011. The original warrant noted the alleged incident happened in May of 2012, but police say that was a clerical error.

CPD continues to investigate the duration of the alleged relationship.

Police served an arrest warrant on Wentzky on Friday afternoon.

CPD initiated the investigation as a result of gaining victim information in partnership with the Forest Acres Police Department.

Lt. Bryant Hinson with the Forest Acres Police Department confirms his department is also conducting an investigation involving Wentzky. He says it is related to the charge filed by Columbia Police, but he also says the FAPD case is "separate" from the Columbia case.

Wentzky is listed as an English teacher at Dreher High School on the school's website.

On her class web page, she describes herself as happily married with two children. She has been teaching at Dreher for seven years.

Wentzky is on paid administrative leave with Richland County School District One. Officials have not commented on the charges, but notified the state Department of Education.

Columbia Police Chief Ruben Santiago requests that if anyone has additional information regarding the case or believes to be a victim to call the Columbia Police Department at (803) 545-3500.

Wentzky was booked on Friday. A judge issued a $5,000 personal recognizance bond in the case.
