A Greenville County teacher has been charged for sex crimes involving a student and for lying to police after deputies said they caught her partially undressed in a vehicle with a student.

Deputies said Elizabeth Heaton Taylor, 27, was charged with two counts of sexual battery with a student between 16-17 years of age and false information to police. 

Deputies said the arrest was made Thursday evening after deputies said they observed a white Ford Explorer parked suspiciously at an address on Holland Road in Simpsonville. 

“Upon making contact with the occupants inside the vehicle, deputies observed a male, later discovered to be a student at the school in which Taylor was employed, and Taylor, who was partially clothed,” said Sergeant Ryan Flood in an e-mail.

During the course on the ensuing investigation, deputies said Taylor provided them with a false name. They also learned that between January 1 and Thursday, Taylor engaged in sexual acts with the student on at least two separate occasions.

Greenville County Schools said Taylor was a Biology teacher and track coach at Greer High School.  She is no longer employed by the school district.
