    WICS: UPDATED: Lanphier Teacher Investigated for Inappropriate Contact with Student (Nov 2 2012)

    Springfield police and District 186 are both in the early stages of their investigations. They're not releasing the teacher's name or any details about the alleged behavior ... Administrators are remaining tight-lipped but say the teacher is on paid administrative leave until further notice.

    The State Journal-Register article below is the only one at this point with any real details at this point, and I can only quote so much here:

    State Journal-Register: Lanphier teacher arrested for alleged affair with student (Nov 14 2012)

    Jennifer Tyree, 36, of Petersburg was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon on one count of criminal sexual assault, Springfield police said. She remained in jail Wednesday night. Tyree was placed on administrative leave by the Springfield School District Nov. 2, after her husband told Petersburg police his wife was having an affair with a teenage boy, according to police reports. He also told the youth’s mother about the alleged relationship, the reports said. The mother reportedly told police her son admitted the affair. The mother said Tyree contacted her about a month ago, saying she was one of her son’s teachers and would like to mentor him in order to improve his grades, a police report said.

    State Journal-Register: Teacher accused of student affair did not have high school credential (Nov 15 2012)

    Lanphier High School teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student should not have been teaching high school students to begin with, according to state teacher certification records ... [Jennifer] Tyree taught English at Lanphier, even though her teaching credentials qualify her to teach only elementary and middle school grades. Tyree holds an elementary teaching certificate, which allows teachers to teach kindergarten through ninth grade. Teachers must obtain an endorsement in a specific subject to be hired at a middle school or high school. Tyree has endorsements for middle school grades, but not high school.

    This UK Daily Mail article is the best overview of the case yet -- best to skip my quotes below & go to the Daily Mail to read the whole article.

    UK Daily Mail: Teacher arrested over affair with 17-year-old student after her husband tipped off the boy's mother (Nov 18 2012)

    A teacher has been arrested over an affair with a 17 year old student - after her husband tipped off the boy's mother. Jennifer Tyree was charged with criminal assault after the teenager admitted to investigators he had sex multiple times with her. The 36 year old is now facing questions over a second relationship after the mother of another 17 year old told police her son had sex with Tyree.

    ...​

    'The woman was coming to my home. She told me she was his mentor. We met for lunch — she picked me up, and we had lunch, and we had discussed nothing but (my son) and his grades. 'I would say, ‘We need more teachers like this,’ not knowing she was sleeping with him'.

    The first affair involving Tyree and a student at Lanphier High School in Springfield, Illinois, came to light her husband discovered she was having sex with a student she was mentoring. He told the boy's mother he witnessed them having inappropriate contact with each other and also that his wife and her son had rented a hotel room on September 21st. The boy’s mother called police to report details of the affair. When questioned by police, the boy reportedly admitted to having sex with his teacher. The boy's mother told police that Jennifer Tyree contacted her about a month ago and stated that she was a teacher and was interested in mentoring her son to improve his grades. Tyree then visited the student's home on several occasions to help with class assignments. She then allegedly took the boy to movies and kickboxing classes but is now believed to have used the activities to have sex with the teen.

    State Journal-Register: No change in bond for teacher accused of sexual assault (Dec 7 2012)

    Bond was maintained at $100,000 Friday for an English teacher at Lanphier High School accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student earlier this year ... Circuit Judge Leslie Graves maintained Tyree’s bond following a hearing at which defense attorney Scott Hanken argued that Tyree has family support, does not represent a flight risk and has no criminal record. He asked for Tyree’s bond to be lowered to $25,000.

    Assistant state’s attorney Sheryl Essenburg told Graves that when the original bond was set, authorities knew of only one victim. Since Tyree’s arrest, a second 17-year-old has said he and the woman had sex. No charges have been filed in that incident. Essenburg said Tyree also had contacted the original victim, asking him to “find her a gun.”

    State Journal-Register: State officials praise progress at Lanphier High (Dec 12 2012)

    Jennifer Tyree, 36, of Petersburg, was brought on as an “emergency hire.” Tyree was arrested in November on a criminal sexual assault charge for allegedly having an affair with a 17-year-old male student ... After Tyree’s arrest, the mother of a second student told authorities her son had a similar relationship with the former teacher. Charges have not been filed in that case. Alexander Ikejiaku, the district’s human resources director, resigned amid the fallout.

    One thing leads to another which leads to another ... :)
