LAYTON — A former Northridge High School social studies teacher has been accused of having an illegal sexual relationship with one of her students.
Chaarie Lynn Jaramillo, 35, was arrested Tuesday by Layton police and booked in the Davis County Jail on three counts of first-degree felony rape and two counts of second-degree felony forcible sex abuse of a 17- year-old. She is being held in lieu of a $30,000 bail.
Layton Police Lt. Shawn Horton said police received information in February of 2012 that Jaramillo had a sexual relationship with a male student at Northridge High School from 2003 to 2004.
“She held a special position of trust as a teacher,” Horton said.
Mark Peterson, spokesman with the State Office of Education, said Jaramillo taught at Northridge High School from 2001 to 2009.
She has been teaching at Granger High School in Granite School District from 2009 to 2012, Peterson said.
She began her teaching career at Layton High School in 2001.
The Davis County Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case before filing formal charges in 2nd District Court.
