YUKON, Oklahoma -

A teacher at Yukon High School is accused of having sex with a student. 

Canadian County sheriff’s deputies arrested 22-year-old Hunter Day at her home, on Wednesday, after learning about her alleged relationship with a 16-year-old boy, a News 9 source confirmed. She is facing complaints of second-degree rape, facilitating sexual contact with a minor and possession of child pornography.

According to the sheriff’s office, deputies began investigating after they were contacted by the boy’s parents. Evidence of the relationship was found on the boy’s phone, including explicit text messages and nude pictures.

“This is a classic case of a serious breach of public trust. School teachers are entrusted to protect and educate our children, not to engage in an unlawful sexual relationship with them,” said Chris West, Canadian County Sheriff.

Investigators say Day and the boy had also arranged a meeting on the day of the arrest. When deputies arrived at the home, they sent Day a message from the boy’s phone, saying, “I’m here” to which they say Day responded, “The doors [sic] unlocked as usual.”

Authorities say when they came inside the house they found Day sitting on the living room floor with the lights turned off, candles lit, wearing a Christmas cat T-shirt and workout shorts. When confronted they say she admitted to sending “bra and panty” pics of herself, and admitted that she had received photos of the boy’s genitals.

“I’m no longer surprised by the people who commit these crimes, because predators come from all walks of life,” said West.

Day had received an emergency certification to teach science at the high school. News 9 spoke with Day for a story on emergency teaching certifications back in October. News 9 has also learned that Day's husband is a football coach at the high school.

During a press conference on Thursday, the Yukon Schools Superintendent Jason Simeroth said he could not comment on Day’s status with the school, pending the investigation.

Day was booked into the Canadian County Jail. Her bond was set at $85,000.
