    Police say a Maine private school teacher has been indicted on 26 sex charges involving a student.

    Police say 37-year-old Derek Boyce previously admitted to them that he had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old female student. The Pine Tree Academy teacher was indicted Tuesday on multiple counts of sexual assault and sexual abuse.

    A detective says the victim's mother came home one night to find Boyce engaged in a sex act with her daughter. She then contacted police.

    A spokesperson for Pine Tree Academy says Boyce has been placed on administrative leave and the school believes this is an isolated incident.

    It wasn't immediately known if Boyce has a lawyer, and he did not respond to emails seeking comment.
