Officials interviewed the student, who stated she knew Jossie for approximately one year and developed a close relationship with him. The student stated she began to text Jossie through the summer and he once took to her an expensive restaurant.
According to the criminal complaint, the student told investigators she had sex with Jossie a total of five times.
