A Teacher has been arrested after she failed to report her husband sexually abusing two youngsters.
As a teacher, it is compulsory for her to report anything inappropriate happening to children.
However police in Arkansas say she failed to tell authorities of what she had seen.
Reports claim the husband and wife were arrested on Friday in connection to the sexual abuse of two toddlers.
It is said Douglas Pershing was arrested on a charge of sexual assault against a child he is also accused of performing sex acts with a four-year-old girl.
That same girl is said to have told police a two-year-old girl was also involved.
Douglas Pershing is a self-published author of a science fiction series for young adults called Shifters, reports claim.
Meanwhile, Tamy Lynn Pershing, is a sixth-grade language teacher at Arkansas Arts Academy, was arrested on charge of Failure to Notify by a Mandated Reporter, and Endangering the Welfare of a Minor.
Reports claim that allegations from the older girl who told police Tamy Pershing walked in on Doug Pershing and the girl and told Doug “to stop and not do it again”, but then did nothing more about reporting it to anyone, as her job insists she does.
