PORT ORANGE, Fla. -- A teacher who resigned from a Volusia County Christian school amid allegations that she had a sexual relationship with a student has been arrested.

Cynthia Horvath, 45, of South Daytona, was arrested Wednesday on charges of unlawful sexual activity with certain minors at the Wal-Mart on Beville Road in Daytona Beach around 12:20 p.m.

Horvath, who taught at Warner Christian Academy, was transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail and was being held on a $10,000 bond.

The teacher was investigated by Port Orange and South Daytona police after she was confronted by a school administrator about having an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old male, police said.

According to a preliminary investigation by South Daytona police, the teacher and the student met off-campus over a four-month period and had a sexual relationship.
