Washington Middle School teacher faces sex allegations

NORMAN — McClain County deputies and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating a female Washington Middle School teacher after someone told school officials she was having sex with a student.

The teacher in question has been suspended with pay, Superintendent A.J. Brewer said. Allegations made include the teacher not only having sex with a 15-year-old male but also sending inappropriate text messages.

“We turned the investigation over to make sure it’s done properly. We don’t have the expertise to get into this and investigate this, so we turned it over to law enforcement to find the truth,” Brewer said.

“We just hope the truth will be revealed. Until then, they’re just allegations,” he said.

There was also social media interaction between the teacher and the student.

The McClain County Sheriff’s Office confiscated the teacher’s phone on Wednesday and sent it to OSBI for forensic testing.

The teacher has not been arrested or formally charged with anything.
