Teen Sex – With A Teacher: Clovis Teacher Accused of Sex Crimes

Posted:
CLOVIS, Calif. (KMPH) -

28-year-old Lindsey Trimble taught science at Clovis East High School and was arrested last Thursday on two charges of sex crimes against a student.

She is out of jail on bail.

Some Clovis parents are not happy with the school district, because it waited nearly a week to tell them what happened.

Clovis Unified officials say they waited that long to tell parents about the arrest because Clovis police asked them to hold off until their investigation was complete.

"We trust these people and we should be informed about what's happening in our school district," said Steve Wisnewski, a parent of a Clovis East High School student.

He had no clue a teacher at his son's school was arrested on sex charges until KMPH told him.

"It doesn't make me happy," said Wisnewski.

Police say the sexual encounters with the student happened at homes in Fresno County between March and July of this year.

Trimble quit her job as a teacher Thursday.

Parents got a phone call from the principal Tuesday morning, informing them of the arrest.

"If they made it this morning, a lot of people were at work, so they may have got it this evening...6 days, I'm not too happy about that," Said Wisnewski.

Clovis police say only one 17-year-old boy is involved in the investigation, and they don't believe Trimble had sex with any other students.

Still, some parents we spoke with say they don't appreciate being left in the dark for nearly a week.

"I didn't know it was 5 days after the arrest. I just barely got the phone call this morning. Actually, my daughter found out last night. So we didn't even know. It's something that should've been told right away, not something they waited on," said a parent who identified herself as Michelle.

Trimble is expected to be officially charged with the sex crimes in court on December 20.

Trimble is the latest of a handful of female teachers in the Valley who've been arrested for having sex with a student.

30-year-old Megan Denman, a former teacher at Hoover High in Fresno, was arrested in April of this year, and recently pleaded guilty to six counts related to having sex with a minor.

26-year-old Nadia Diaz, a teacher at Washington Union High school in Easton, was arrested last year, and was recently convicted and sentenced to probation.

Also, Trimble is the second Clovis Unified teacher this year accused of sex crimes against a kid.

Neng Yang, who was fired as a teacher from Freedom Elementary school, is accused of molesting a 7-year-old girl.

Yang faces dozens of child molestation and child pornography charges.
