Oklahoma teacher’s aide facing second-degree rape charge
DUNCAN, Okla. – A former Duncan High School teacher’s aide is facing a second-degree rape charge for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a student.
On Nov. 1, police say a father found concerning messages on his daughter’s Facebook account.
The girl told her father that the messages were from Darryl Stevenson, a teacher’s aide at Duncan High School, KSWO reports.
In the messages, Stevenson allegedly asked the girl how old she was and where she lived.
The father reported the incident to police, who later brought Stevenson in for questioning.
The man denied talking to the girl and said someone else had sent the messages from his Facebook account, the Duncan Banner reports.
However, he would not give authorities the name of the person he claimed used his account.
Police later served a search warrant and searched Stevenson’s Facebook messages where they reportedly found hundred of messages between him and another underage girl.
Detectives questioned the 14-year-old girl and she allegedly admitted to having a sexual relationship with Stevenson.
She said the two of them often talked about how much trouble he would be in if they ever got caught.
Stevenson resigned from his position at the high school shortly after police began investigating his relationship with the student, school officials confirmed.
He turned himself into police Wednesday.
He was booked into the Stephens County Jail on a complaint of second-degree rape.
According to KSWO, Stevenson is also the president of a local non-profit in Duncan that works with at-risk youth.
