Guthrie police investigating after allegations of inappropriate behavior by Oklahoma teacher

GUTHRIE, Okla. (KFOR) – ONE Guthrie Middle School staff is currently under investigation after being accused of inappropriate behavior towards students.

The suspect is believed to be a teacher. KFOR has chosen not to identify him because he has not been charged.

According to the Guthrie Police Department, a parent of Guthrie Middle School reported the alleged incident last Thursday.

“Parents arrived on time,” Sgt said. Anthony Gibbs with the Guthrie Police Department. “As anyone with children, when you hear about the allegations, what you want is for you to make sure that your local law enforcement has confidence that they are complying with this because there is Two things can happen.”

Authorities will not let KFOR know if a parent claims that the incident is believed to have happened once or multiple times.

Guthrie Public Schools issued the following statement to KFOR:

“On Friday, January 7, GPS administrators were made aware of an allegation against an employee at Guthrie Middle School by the Guthrie Police Department. The employee was immediately placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure when matters are being investigated. Guthrie Public Schools continues to cooperate with the Guthrie Police Department as the investigation continues. The district will have no further comment on this matter at this time.”

KFOR spoke with a longtime resident, who decided not to rush to judge or express an opinion on the allegations.

“The justice system will take care of it and I hope they will do whatever they need to do,” said Cheri French. “It could completely ruin his career if it’s completely untrue or he needs to be locked out because it’s true.”

KFOR asked Sgt. Gibbs if he can say how many students were involved or whether there have been charges, Gibbs told us all are under investigation.

“When someone makes any accusations against us and presents them to us as a police department, we have to fully investigate that,” Sgt said. Gibbs. “It has to overcome everything that we need to do.”

Once again, KFOR has chosen to keep the teacher’s identity private as allegations have not yet been formally brought against the teacher.

Sgt. Gibbs told KFOR that the investigation is in its final stages and he hopes to release more details in the coming days.
