Chief Deputy Ben Houchin said that parents, who are not connected to the victim, reached out to LSO on May 14 with their concerns about Bowman and a 17-year-old boy.
According to Chief Houchin, a search warrant was served at Bowman’s apartment where investigators claim they found evidence of the crime.
During the investigation, LSO said they learned that Bowman had developed a relationship with a high school student from Norris in March of 2023 that led to sex on 10 occasions.
Chief Houchin said Bowman was called out of class on Friday, before her arrest, to speak with investigators.
Bowman taught 9th and 10th grade English for Norris High School and was involved with the school trap team, but has since been fired.
Bowman bonded out of jail by paying ten percent of her $50,000 bond. She’s due back in court on July 6.
