EUFAULA, Oklahoma -- An Oklahoma teacher is accused of having sex multiple times with a teenage student.

Michelle McCutchan, 38, has been charged with two counts of second degree rape and one count of sodomy following an investigation into allegations she had sex with a 16-year-old boy student.

The teen is a sophomore at Checotah High School.  McCutchan is a fifth grade teacher at Marshall Elementary School in Checotah.  

"She's a veteran of the school system," Tonya French, McIntosh County Sherriff's Office investigator, said. "What I've heard across the board is they didn't see it coming."

McCutchan appeared in a McIntosh County courtroom on Tuesday.

Calls to the school district went unreturned, but News On 6 was told due to the investigation, McCutchan was suspended with pay.

French said the five alleged acts between McCutchan and the teen took place between January and February 2011 at the teacher's home and the teen's home.

French says McCutchan sent nude pictures of herself to the teen's cell phone. But she wouldn't go into further detail.

"I'd really rather not with it still being under investigation and he's a minor," she said.

McCutchan has been released from jail on a $5,000 bond.
