A Clover High School math teacher and coach had sex with a student and provided him with alcohol at the teacher’s home [near Lake Wylie on Valley Forge Drive] last summer, arrest warrants released Tuesday allege.

Landreth’s charge of sexual battery notes it was “without force or coercion,” meaning the sexual activity was consensual. South Carolina law states that sexual relations between a teacher and a student who is 16 or 17 is a felony regardless of consent, punishable by up to five years in prison.

Clover school officials were notified of the inappropriate relationship between Landreth and a student last week, schools spokesman Mychal Frost said. Officials immediately began an investigation and notified the York County Sheriff’s Office, he said.
