Moore teacher arraigned for inappropriate relationship with student
MOORE, Okla. – A Moore teacher was arraigned in court Friday for having an inappropriate relationship with a student.
Earlier this year, Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn filed one count of forcible sodomy against Sandra Mayfield, 51.
Mayfield is accused of performing oral sex on a 17-year-old student on Feb. 27 in the parking lot of Buck Thomas Park.
Investigators claim Mayfield and the student also drove around the metro and were seen kissing and hugging on multiple security cameras in Oklahoma City.
The charges say Mayfield is a teacher at Moore High School and the teen is a student at the school.
Administrators learned of the incident on March 4, according to a statement issued by Moore Public Schools.
District officials say they contacted the Moore Police Department and provided them with information about the incident.
Investigators said surveillance video of Mayfield and the student hugging and kissing in Oklahoma City was key in bringing charges against her.
The incident was reported to a school resource officer and police interviewed the 17-year-old.
They say his story and the security video matched up.
During the investigation, Mayfield was placed on administrative leave.
She was later banned from campus and from having any contact with the student.
Police said, as far as they know, the alleged crime at Buck Thomas Park was the only incident between the two.
She waived her right to a preliminary hearing in July.
Today, she was formally arraigned for the alleged sexual assault.
Her next court date is scheduled for March 24th.
