The arrest report for the former substitute teacher who was arrested for having sex acts with a student.

According to the report, 23-year-old Robyn-Lea Gentile was volunteering as the director of a hip-hop club made up of students from Harney Middle School and Las Vegas High School when she met the student in question.

Gentile and the student shared at least four or five kisses during the relationship and exchanged approximately 800 text messages with the student.

Gentile would give the student a ride home after practice for the hip-hop club. It was during those times that she and the student kissed.

The student told police that he felt obligated to be in a relationship with Gentile so he would feel comfortable in the club.

During an interview with the police, Gentile admitted that she did not view the victim as a student and the two of them would text about relationship problems with other people.

She also said that the student was very flirtatious with her via text. She also admitted at one point that she felt "powerful" and felt that she had revenge because her fiance had been texting other girls.

Gentile appeared in court on Friday morning. Her bail was set for $10,000 and she will be back in court on March 8 for another bail hearing.
