A teacher at an Elk Grove high school is under arrest following allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct between himself and a 17-year-old.
It is the seventh such incident to happen within the Elk Grove Unified School District within the past two years, district administrators said Wednesday.
John Richard Young, 53, of Sacramento was a teacher at Sheldon High School and the allegations stem from incidents that happened more than a year ago, said Elk Grove police investigators.
Police became aware of the allegations on March 16 and an investigation was then launched, police said.
Young was arrested on May 2 at his home on a felony warrant.
