YUKON, Okla. – A Yukon teacher was arrested for allegedly having sexual contact with a minor.
Officials say Hunter Day, 22, a science teacher at Yukon High School, was arrested Wednesday.
Jail records show she was arrested for second-degree rape, facilitating sexual contact with a minor and possessing child pornography.
“Yukon Public Schools was informed late Wednesday afternoon, November 15th, that an employee of the district was arrested for engaging in an inappropriate relationship with a high school student. This behavior was representative of a very poor decision by a person entrusted with teaching our students. The safety and well-being of our students is our number one priority. Yukon utilizes application references, interviewing protocols and state background checks prior to hiring any employee in the district in an effort to protect our students. None of these security checks revealed anything that would have alerted the district to the possibility of this event.
Yukon Public Schools is fully cooperating with local law enforcement officials during this ongoing investigation. The district is not at liberty to discuss any further details of this incident or divulge names of any of the parties involved. All questions pertaining to this incident should be directed to the Canadian County Sheriff’s Department,” a statement from the district read.
