YUKON, OK (KSWO)- A teacher at Yukon High School has bonded out of jail after being accused of having sex with a student.
Hunter Day, 22, was arrested by Canadian County sheriff's deputies after the parents of one of her students found evidence of a relationship on their son's phone.
According to the sheriff's office, the parents contacted them, saying the teen and teacher had shared explicit text messages and nude photos. Investigators say Day and the teen arranged to meet on the day of the arrest.
Deputies then showed up to the meeting instead of the teen, to find Day sitting on the living room floor with candles lit. She was arrested and the sheriff's department then let the superintendent know about the case.
"I'm heartbroken. It's very emotional because our kids... they're our kids, and the staff is our family," said Yukon Schools Superintendent Jason Simeroth.
The superintendent went on to say that Day passed all of her background checks.
She had received an emergency certification to teach science at the high school this year.
She's facing charges of second-degree rape, facilitating sexual contact with a minor and possession of child pornography.
