The sexual relationship with an adult high school student was apparently legal and consensual but the Oregon State Police decided to arrest a school teacher at Lost River High school. 35 year old Jeffrey Vincent was arrested for his relationship with one of his former high school students, now 19 years old.
The relationship allegedly began when the former student was still attending the high school at Lost River, and the relationship had gone on for a significant period. However, the former student was reportedly legally an adult at 18 years of age when the sexual relationship began.
On July 6, 2017, Vincent was taken into custody by Oregon State Police and taken to the Klamath County Jail on two counts of "Official Misconduct" in the First Degree, two counts of Coercion, and one count of Tampering with a Witness.
Vincent was placed on Administrative Leave by the Klamath County School District, pending the investigation.
