Canadian Co., Ok – A 22 year old teacher, and wife of the local high school football coach has been arrested on various charges after police allege that she engaged in a sexually explicit relationship with an underaged student.
Hunter Day, the science teacher at Yukon High School in Canadian County, Oklahoma is just 22 years old, but may be facing years in prison following her arrest. Day, who is married to the football coach has been charged with second-degree rape, facilitating sexual contact with a minor and possession of child pornography according to KWTV, the local TV news station.
Police have stated that they began their investigation into Day after a teen boy’s parents reported finding sexually explicit photos and messages on his phone. According to KWTV the arrest came when police arrived at Day’s house and texted the teacher from the student’s phone claiming that the boy had arrived. It was then that Day responded, telling them to come inside and that she was ready.
Police entered the house to find the 22 year old sitting on the floor, with the lights off and surrounded by candles.
“I’m no longer surprised by the people who commit these crimes, because predators come from all walks of life,” Canadian County Sheriff Chris West told the outlet.
“This is a classic case of a serious breach of public trust,” he said. “School teachers are entrusted to protect and educate our children, not to engage in an unlawful sexual relationship with them.”
Day was incarcerated in the Canadian County Jail and bond was set at $85,000, KWTV reported
