DETROIT — A Detroit man who was a teacher at East English Village High School has been charged with fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct after he allegedly had inappropriate sexual contact with a student in 2019. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy’s office announced the charge recently against Charles Dunnell, 34, after he was arraigned last month.
Dunnell is accused of going to the home of the then 17-year-old student on June 1, 2019 around 8 p.m. when he knew the teen would be home alone. During the evening, Dunnell allegedly gave the teen alcohol and then had sexual contact with the student.
Detroit Police investigated the incident and eventually arrested Dunnell on July 7, 2021. Along with the criminal sexual conduct charge, Dunnell was also charged with one count of selling or furnishing alcohol to a minor. Court records show Dunnell stood mute during the arraignment and a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.
Dunnell was given $20,000 bond and ordered not to have any contact with the alleged victim in the case. He was also ordered not to live with any minors. A preliminary examination has been set for Sept. 29.
