Hope Jacoby - High School Athletic Trainer Charged With Having An Ongoing Sexual Relationship With Student
Tustin, California (The Weekly Vice) -- Hope Jacoby, a 23-year-old athletic trainer at Tustin High School, in Tustin California was arrested on suspicion of having an ongoing sexual relationship with a male student.
Jacoby was arrested on suspicion of engaging in oral copulation of a minor and unlawful sex with a minor, according to Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesperson, Jim Amormino.
Authorities first became aware of the alleged activity on Friday after a student-witness reported seeing text message photographs on the student's cell phone.
Following an investigation, authorities believe Jacoby began a sexual relationship with the teen shortly after she began working at the school in September, 2007. The relationship allegedly continued for about a year, resulting in numerous instances of sexual contact between the two.
Investigators say the sexual activity occurred at various locations including Jacoby's San Juan Capistrano residence and car. One such incident of sexual activity allegedly occurred in the parking lot of an elementary school.
Jacoby reportedly submitted a letter of resignation in November, stating that Friday was to be her last day working at the school. She was arrested however before the day was over - the last day before Christmas/winter vacation began at the school.
Jacoby was booked into Women's Central Jail In Santa Ana, Calif. She was released on Saturday after posting a $100,000 bond.
Note: There are numerous photographs floating around besides this mugshot, that are being attributed to Hope Jacoby. Those photographs are NOT Mrs. Jacoby. I have been in contact with the real girl in those photographs who explained that they were stolen from her MySpace page and then used to make a fake profile.
