Court documents show that the sexual activity happened at the house of the Utah teacher accused of raping the 17-year-old in February and March.

Jarrell was charged Friday in 3rd District Court with rape, a first-degree felony, and forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.

Jordan School District spokeswoman Sandy Riesgraf said that Jarrell resigned from the school on Friday after having been on administrative leave since the allegations arose a month ago. Per KSL-TV, she resigned to focus on her defense and will plead not guilty.

  • The Utah teacher accused of raping the 17-year-old had been teaching in the Jordan District for just eight months.
  • She was suspended after the district received "a complaint about inappropriate behavior," which was immediately turned over to police.
  • The district had only received the one complaint regarding Jarrell.
  • Students said that they were surprised to hear about the Utah teacher being accused of raping a 17-year-old because she was a popular teacher everyone seemed to like.
  • The Utah teacher accused of raping 17-year-old is due in court on May 16.
