A staff member at a school in Oklahoma was arrested after she was accused of having “inappropriate communication” with a teenage student, authorities said.
Officials said the Deer Creek School District was alerted on Dec. 2 about the alleged communication between Sarah Hull-Degroat, 23, because of monitoring they do through internet safety solutions at a school in Edmond, KFOR reported.
Hull-Degroat was placed on administrative leave from her position and the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office placed her under arrest.
A probable cause affidavit obtained by KOKH-TV states Hull-Degroat had been communicating with a 15-year-old student via Google Docs since at least October 2022.
“This essentially allowed each party to communicate in written form within a shared document between the two of them,” investigators wrote in the legal document. “The content of their recent communication is sexual in nature and describes sexual acts they hope to experience with each other.”
Authorities alleged in the affidavit that Hull-Degroat also shared a topless photo with the teenager.
Hull-Degroat was being held on a $50,000 bond at the Oklahoma County Detention Center on a charge of facilitating sexual conduct with a minor.
