Holly Polson A female teacher's aide was arrested Tuesday for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old boy in an empty classroom at a Palmdale middle school.

Holly Polson, 35, was booked on suspicion of four felony counts of lewd acts with a child and was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

In interviews with investigators, the boy said he had sexual intercourse with Polson during the last two weeks at Shadow Hills Intermediate School, according to Sgt. Brian Hudson of the department's Special Victims Bureau.

Hudson told The Times that Polson had been tutoring the boy before and after school. Authorities were alerted after a relative allegedly discovered text messages from Polson on the boy's cellphone.

Anyone with information in the ongoing case is asked to call (866) 247-5877.
