A suspicious husband used the GPS capability on his wife's cellphone to find the 38-year-old teacher having sex with a 16-year-old boy.

Amie Neely now faces a felony sexual assault charge after being arrested by Port St. Lucie, Fla. police early Sunday morning, according to TC Palm.

WPBF reports that the boy was an exchange student living with Neely and her husband at the time of the alleged assault. There is also another exchange student still taking up residence there, according to the station.

There is no indication that Neely, who teaches at Community Christian Academy, ever taught the student she's accused of assaulting.

The boy told cops he drove Neely to an area near St. Lucie West Centennial High School. He said he got in the back seat with Neely and, as the two were having sex, the teacher's husband walked up to the car and discovered them.

Neely allegedly blamed "midlife crisis" feelings for her behavior when questioned by police, according to TC Palm. She also said the boy kept asking for sex and she hoped he would stop asking if she went along with his requests, according to police. The boy told cops he and Neely had sex on multiple occasions, including inside the teacher's home.

Community Christian Academy told WPBF they are cooperating with authorities and have no further comment at this time.

Neely was released on $15,000 bail.
