A 41-year-old Eastmont Middle School employee was booked into the Salt Lake County jail Monday for allegedly having sex with a teenage boy.

Jamie Lynn Greenwood, a cafeteria supervisor employed at the school since 2006, was booked into jail on suspicion of sexual activity with a minor, according to booking documents.

Greenwood told investigators she had sex with the teenager about 10 times at her home and in her car between March 2009 and January, according to jail booking documents.

The boy was 15 and 16 when the alleged contact occurred, Sandy police Sgt. Troy Arnold said.

The teen told police he was forced to have sex with Greenwood or she would tell his mother and friends what was going on, booking documents state. He also said Greenwood bought hundreds of dollars worth of gifts and then said he had to repay her with sexual favors, booking documents state.

The alleged abuse came to light after rumors circulated around the teenager's high school, Arnold said. The teen first met Greenwood when he attended Eastmont Middle School where she worked, documents state.

"That did not have a direct influence on them forming this relationship," Arnold said.

The victim was a friend of one of Greenwood's family members, booking documents state.

Greenwood was contacted at home by detectives and voluntarily went to the Sandy Police Department where she was arrested, Arnold said.

Jennifer Toomer-Cook, spokeswoman for the Canyons School District, said Greenwood was placed on paid administrative leave Monday when the allegations came to light. She said the district is conducting its own investigation into the allegations of professional misconduct.
