Courtney L. Jarrell
Courtney Louise Jarrell is a former math teacher who raped a teenage girl at Riverton High in Utah. The girl was only 17.
Jordan School District spokeswoman Sandy Riesgraf tells KSL-TV that Jarrell resigned from the school Friday. School officials had placed her on administrative leave a month ago when the allegations first arose.
Court documents show that in February and March, Jarrell allegedly had illegal sexual activity with a 17-year-old girl who attends the school. Prosecutors say the activity happened at Jarrell's house.
Jarrell had been teaching in the Jordan District for eight months. She now faces five years to life in prison.
Ultimately, the judge sentenced Jarrell to 18 months' probation, 100 hours of community service and a $900 fine. He sentenced her to one year of jail on each of three counts of sexual battery, a class A misdemeanor, but suspended the jail time.
