A student turned her in and police filed charges of soliciting a child for unlawful sexual conduct using a computer.
An Oklahoma chemistry teacher is behind bars after deputies discovered she was having sex with one of her students. The parents were anxious that the duo had already had sex and were planning to do so again and had asked investigators to conduct a forensic review of their son’s phone.
Police say the 16-year-old boy had explicit text messages and nude photos from the Yukon High School teacher, Hunter Day, on his phone, and his parents called police.
During the course of the phone examination, investigators said they determined that Day and boy had already had sexual intercourse, and that additional plans had been made to meet at her home Wednesday afternoon to have sex again.
“This is a classic case of a serious breach of public trust”, the County Sheriff said in a statement. She also told the boy to hurry up before her husband got home, officials said.
She also told the boy to hurry up before her husband got home, officials said.
When the investigators reached outside Day’s home, they sent a text message from the boy’s phone that said “I am here” to which she replied, “the doors are unlocked as usual”. When the cops located Day, they found her on her living room floor waiting for the boy with lights off and candles lit. After this investigator went inside and identified themselves.
According to authorities, Day cooperated and admitted to the allegations.
The teacher confessed to sending the boy illicit “bra and panty” photos and said he’d also sent her photos of his genitals, KWTV reported.
“I’m no longer surprised by the people who commit these crimes, because predators come from all walks of life”.
Hunter Day, 22, was arrested on Wednesday for second-degree rape, facilitating sexual contact with a minor and possession of child pornography charges, KWTV reports.
During a news conference, authorities said they found evidence, including on the boy’s phone, of a sexual relationship between the teacher and student.
“This behavior was representative of a very poor decision by a person entrusted with teaching our students”, Simeroth said. But Yukon Public Schools released a statement via Twitter that ensured “the safety and well-being of our students is our number one priority”.
The Yukon Public School said that it conducts background checks on the staff before hiring them but nothing alerted them of her alleged behavior.
The Yukon Schools superintendent declined to comment on the case as it is part of an investigation.
