REDWOOD CITY A teacher at Redwood Baptist School is accused of having a sexual tryst with a former 16-year-old student, the District Attorney's Office reported Thursday.

Joan Marie Marquez-Sladky, 27, is alleged to have had intercourse with the student referred to in court documents as John Doe to protect his identity on four separate occasions between December 2003 and January 2004.

Sladky was arrested Wednesday on a $175,000 felony warrant and was arraigned in Superior Court, where she pleaded not guilty.

The affair came to light more than one year ago when Sladky confided in another teacher, prosecutor Melissa McKowan said.
