Yukon teacher formally charged following rape arrest
YUKON, Okla. (KOKH) —
A Yukon teacher accused of raping a student has been formally charged in court.
Hunter Day, 22, was charged with rape in the second degree and soliciting sexual conduct with a minor by use of technology Nov. 22 in Canadian County court.
Day, a chemistry teacher at Yukon High School, was arrested Nov. 15 after authorities were contacted by the parents of a student who gave them the boy's phone. On the phone, authorities found text messages and nude photographs. The boy's parents were concerned that Day had already had sex with their son and that she was his chemistry teacher. The boy's parents had learned that Day and him had planned to meet Wednesday for sex at her apartment.
Investigators then began using the boy's phone to contact Day to see if the meeting was still on. She allegedly replied "Yes" and told him to hurry and get there before her husband got home from work. She also noted that the door would be unlocked. When investigators arrived, they opened the door and allegedly found Day sitting on the living room floor with the lights turned off, candles lit and wearing a t-shirt and workout shorts. She allegedly admitted to having sex with the boy and sending and receiving nude photographs.
Yukon Public Schools says they are cooperating with the investigation. She has been suspended pending an investigation. Day was hired at the school on an emergency certification and began in August. The status of that certification will be taken up by the State Board of Education in December.
