KSCB News - December 6, 2016 11:01 pm

(Woodward News)  A teacher in the Beaver Public School system has been arrested and charged with first degree rape.

According to court records, Johnathan Michael Hampton, 31, of Beaver was formally charged on Friday of first degree rape and violation of Oklahoma laws via his use of a computer.

Hampton was working as a Beaver High School math teacher and coach when the charges were filed as a result of a complaint filed through the school, allegedly regarding his conduct toward a student.

He is currently on indefinite suspension pending the outcome of the legal charges against him, said Beaver Superintendent Scott Kinsey.

Hampton worked as a teacher in the Mooreland School District for one year during the 2014-2015 school year before resigning and going to work for the Beaver School District, according to Mooreland Superintendent Terry Kellner.

According to the Oklahoma Statutes, Title 21, rape in the first degree is a felony punishable by imprisonment in state prison for five years to life. For more go to www.woodwardnews.net
