(HILTON HEAD ISLAND PACKET) — A Battery Creek High School psychologist charged with sexual battery of a student was released from jail on a personal recognizance bond Saturday, the same day the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office released new details of the incident.

Megan Michelle Snipes, 28, was arrested Friday after a Beaufort mother told deputies she discovered communication between her 16-year-old son and Snipes that led her to believe the two were having sex, a report on the incident said. The student has been meeting with the school psychologist at least once a week, according to the Sheriff’s Office .

Snipes was released from the Beaufort County Detention Center at midday Saturday on a personal bond of $50,000, according to court records.

On Friday morning, the student had reportedly left a mobile application open on his mother’s phone, revealing several messages between him and Snipes.
