Sub­sti­tute teacher ar­rested

The Oklahoman - - NEWS -

A Mid­west City-Del City School Dis­trict sub­sti­tute teacher was ar­rested Thurs­day, ac­cused of so­lic­it­ing sex from a mi­nor and show­ing ob­scene ma­te­ri­als to a mi­nor.

Del City po­lice said they were no­ti­fied on Thurs­day that Dar­ris Turner, 33, re­port­edly so­licited sex from a stu­dent at Del City High School.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors met with a 17-year-old girl about the al­le­ga­tions. She iden­ti­fied Turner as “Mr. T.” An­other stu­dent, a 16-year-old girl, also re­ported al­le­ga­tions against Turner, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

Po­lice said Turner used the same ap­proach on both ju­ve­niles and think there might be other vic­tims. Turner has worked as a sub­sti­tute teacher at el­e­men­tary, mid­dle and high schools in the school dis­trict for sev­eral years.

School dis­trict of­fi­cials said Turner is no longer em­ployed with the dis­trict and that he passed all state back­ground check re­quire­ments when he was hired in Fe­bru­ary.

Po­lice said Turner is be­ing held at the Del City jail pend­ing fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the al­le­ga­tions.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about any in­ci­dents in­volv­ing Turner should call the Del City Po­lice Depart­ment at 677-2443.
