Mayes County prosecutors have charged a former Chouteau Schools employee with rape after they say she was having sex with a 16-year-old high school student.
Only News On 6 was there as 41-year-old Jennifer Frazier turned herself into the Mayes County jail on Wednesday after being charged with two counts of rape, as well as one count of child pornography.
Court documents say Frazier was working in the same classroom as the 16-year-old boy at Chouteau High School until the district moved her to the elementary school after the allegations surfaced.
Investigators say the boy is friends with the Frazier family, often stays at their house and that Frazier and her husband were trying to get legal guardianship of the teen.
Court documents say Frazier's husband had concerns about Frazier and the boy's relationship, which reportedly included texting, sending each other Snapchats, long phone conversations, and even sleeping in the same bed at Frazier's home.
Investigators say the boy told them he and Frazier had sex in her truck and at her home more than a dozen times. Investigators also say there are pictures and videos on both of their phones showing the two kissing and engaging in sexual activity.
Frazier's attorney, Christopher Lyons, told News On 6 it's too early to know how his client will plead.
"I can't comment about the facts or circumstances of the case because I don't have all those yet,” said Lyons. “And before I make any kind of prognosis as to what I think is going to occur in any given case, I want to make sure that I have all the necessary information.”
Frazier posted a bond of $75,000 and got out of jail about 30 minutes after turning herself in.
Chouteau-Mazie Public Schools did not respond to News On 6’s question about whether the district had notified parents of the investigation.","published":"2020-03-04T18:53:02.000Z","updated":"2020-03-05T03:13:10.000Z","summary":"Mayes County prosecutors have charged a former Chuteau Schools employee with rape after they say she was having sex with a 16-year-old high school student.
