(Anderson-AP) March 8, 2005 - A Westside High School teacher in Anderson has been suspended with pay after police said they found her with a 17-year-old T.L. Hanna High School male student in a parked vehicle.

Prosecutor Chrissy Adams says 33-year-old Donna Carr Galloway will not face criminal charges because of the student's age. Adams says authorities can file a criminal sexual conduct with a minor charge in cases involving children younger than 16.

An Anderson County sheriff's report says Galloway was found with the male student about 11:30 Friday night at a boat ramp. Anderson District Five Superintendent Betty Bagley says the teen had never attended Westside and apparently met Galloway outside of school activities.

Bagley says Galloway has been employed with the district for about 11 years.
