    Deseret News: Provo High teacher sexually abused one of his students, police say (Jan 24 2014)

    A 17-year-old girl told police that "passionate" kissing, inappropriate touching and sexual activity occurred on "multiple occasions" at the high school. Science teacher Donald Bills, 54, of Orem, was booked into the Utah County Jail for investigation of forcible sexual abuse, four counts of object rape, and two counts of forcible sodomy. The alleged abuse came to light after one of the student's friends found inappropriate text messages on the teen's cellphone, which prompted discussions between the girl, her parents and Bills, said Provo Police Lt. Mathew Siufanua
    The teen told investigators that a first kiss occurred in December but most of the incidents happened within the past two weeks. Bills admitted to kissing, oral sex and inappropriate touching, and he said the last incident occurred on Tuesday, a police affidavit states. Police are unsure whether the girl consented to the relationship, but, either way, Siufanua said, the behavior was inappropriate.

    Salt Lake Tribune: Provo High teacher jailed on student sex allegations (Jan 24 2014)

    Provo police Lt. Mathew Siufanua said Friday the alleged assaults took place at the high school, where Bills taught emergency medical technician courses. The incidents, involving a 17-year-old girl, occurred both during and after school hours over the past two weeks, police said. Siufanua said that text messages sent back and forth between the suspect and the girl had been obtained by an unidentified third party and brought to the attention of police, sparking the investigation. A jail probable cause statement contends that Bills had admitted to the relationship in conversation with other faculty members and then later to police, after he came into the department’s offices for questioning, Siufanua said. The girl also disclosed the alleged sexual contacts when interviewed by investigators.
