An East Ridge High School student caught having sex with his girlfriend, Tuesday, inside the school has been charged with Statutory Rape, officials said.
According to a press release by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, earlier this morning, the School Resource Officer (SRO) at East Ridge High School was notified that a school faculty member had discovered a male and female student engaging in sexual activity at the school.
The SRO immediately conducted an investigation and found the male student involved in the incident was of legal age. The name of the male student is 19-year-old Tegra M. Mutubwa.
Due to the age difference between the two students, Mutubwa was charged with two counts of statutory rape. One count was due to today’s incident and a second count was from a previous incident involving the same student that was uncovered during the SRO’s investigation.
The female student is not of legal age and therefore their name is being withheld from public release.
Mutubwa is currently at the Hamilton County Jail awaiting to be booked.
