A former teacher from North Carolina has been accused of sex offenses with a minor — the same ​girl that Anthony Weiner got ​sent to prison for sexting in 2016, a report says.

Sources told WSOC-TV that the disgraced ex-congressman​ from Queens​, who is serving a 21-month prison sentence, could play a pivotal role in the ​new ​case.

The article goes on to state the following:

Jonathan Busch, 54, is charged with statutory rape of a child under​​ the age of 15 and indecent liberties with a child. He was arrested Thursday in Gaston County, which is where Weiner’s teenage victim reportedly lives.

The girl is now 18 years old, but she was 15 when she began sexting the pervy politician in January 2016. It’s unclear how Busch made contact with her. Authorities would only say that the alleged interactions took place in June and September 2016.

The former teacher used to be employed by Lake Norman High School in Mooresville, but the girl was not a student. School officials told the Charlotte Observer that Busch resigned this week. They said that alleged incidents with the minor “did not occur” on campus. Busch was arrested Thursday and later released on bond.
