A former high school volleyball coach and current Fresno, California teacher is charged with having sex with one of her students.
Here’s Fresno’s KFSN.
“Megan Denman’s face was covered as she walked out of the Fresno County Jail Tuesday evening. The Fresno Police Department says the 29-year-old teacher was booked on one count of sex with a minor and two counts involving sexual acts.”
A writer for The Daily Mail says Denman is a newlywed, married some 18 months ago.
One of Denman’s former students describes her experience in the classroom to a reporter from Fresno’s KGPE.
“She was nice. I mean, she was nice to all the students. I don’t know. I didn’t think she would do that.
... She had her favorites, like, they were seniors and they all hung around at her desk. We didn’t really do work in the class.”
A reporter for Fresno’s KSEE says the Megan Denman case is the latest in a string of similar cases in the area.
“In the last 10 months, there have been at least five investigations into inappropriate relationships between students and teachers in the Central Valley.”
The New York Daily News has a statement from Fresno schools superintendent Michael Hanson.
“Unfortunately, we have learned of an alleged inappropriate relationship between a teacher and student ...Words cannot describe my deep disappointment in this alleged breach of teacher-student relationship. ”
Denman is out on bail and on administrative leave from her job. According to an article from The Fresno Bee — police say the inappropriate relationship was with one student, and they have no evidence of other victim.
