A Clark County school teacher accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student was indicted Thursday by the Clark County grand jury.
Jonathan Scheaffer, 23, is charged with 16 counts of a sex act with a student between the ages of 16 and 17.
Scheaffer was a science teacher and girls’ swim coach at Desert Pines High School. His alleged offenses with the teen girl were reported to a substitute teacher.
Metro Police said the teen girl told them she was in a relationship with Scheaffer for 10 months, from Nov. 2014 until June 2015.
Detectives said Scheaffer admitted to meeting with the teen three to four times a week. Police said Scheaffer also admitted that the relationship was disgusting but that they didn’t have sex, and everything was consensual, “consensual as it can be with a 16-year-old girl,” he said.
Schaefer's total bail was set at $100,000. He's currently in the custody of the Clark County Detention Center.
