McALESTER — Statutory rape charges have been filed against a substitute teacher who is accused of having sex with a 17-year-old Quinton High School student.
Andrea Antrich, 24, was charged in Pittsburg County District Court on Friday with five counts of second-degree rape.
Prosecutors allege that Antrich engaged in sexual activity with a 17-year-old boy in October and November, court documents state. Oklahoma law makes it illegal for a teacher to have sex with an underage student, whether or not the acts are consensual.
According to an affidavit, a police officer was called to Quinton High School on Nov. 29 to investigate allegations that a teacher was having a sexual relationship with a student.
While in the presence of the officer and his mother, the boy said he and Antrich had sex at the woman’s home after school hours.
During interviews with investigators, Antrich, who had been working as a substitute teacher, admitted to having had sex with the student, the affidavit says.
She was taken into custody and has since been released from jail on bond.
