In a world where security cameras are everywhere, teachers who feel compelled to break state laws might want to think again.
That’s especially true in the case of 51-year-old Sandra G. Mayfield, a teacher in the Cleveland County public school system, who’s been hit with a felony charge of having an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old male student.
Some of the “disturbing” behavior was reportedly caught on “multiple security cameras.”
In March, KFOR reported on an investigation involving an off-campus incident between a student and Mayfield:
Now, Mayfield has been charged with forcible sodomy.
According to Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department:
“They met at a business here in Moore, drove around in Oklahoma City, made a few stops, ended up late that night at a park here in Moore, Buck Thomas Park, where she performed oral sex on the 17-year-old.”
Footage also caught them “kissing and hugging” at various places in Oklahoma City, and the teenage boy’s accounts line up with CCTV footage.
Mayfield denies the charge of “forcible sodomy.” Still, she has been banned from Moore High School’s campus and cannot have any contact with the victim.
The school district has offered this response:
“The charges filed this afternoon against our employee are shocking and upsetting and are not representative of the hundreds of other teachers who work hard every day to provide a safe and quality education for the students in the Moore Public School District.”
As far as investigators know, the alleged parking lot incident was the only sexual encounter that took place between Mayfield and the student.
