Daresa Deann Poe, 32-year-old teacher from Waynoka, Oklahoma, has been charged with felony second-degree rape for allegedly having sex with a student.
Poe, who teaches Family, Career, Community Leaders of America class, was charged after a Waynoka Public Schools student was interviewed by Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Chris Ray on Tuesday.
The student reportedly told Ray he had sex with a Waynoka High School teacher, Poe, for a couple of weeks. In a handwritten statement, Poe admitted to having sex with the student, according to the affidavit.
The student reported engaging in sexual intercourse with Poe five or six times since the beginning of January — with the most recent encounter allegedly occurring Tuesday. The incidents allegedly occurred at various locations in Waynoka and Woods County, including the teacher’s lounge at the school and at Poe’s home.
Poe was interviewed by District 26 District Attorney’s Investigator Steve Tanio on Tuesday.
“Daresa admitted she had engaged in sexual intercourse with the aforementioned student on multiple occasions,” Tanio wrote in the affidavit.
Daresa Poe allegedly informed Tanio of additional instances of sexual activity with the student, beginning with an incident on Dec. 29, 2014.
Poe reported two incidents occurred in the teacher’s lounge at the Waynoka Public Schools building.
Waynoka Public Schools administration was not immediately available to confirm Poe’s employment status with the district on Wednesday afternoon but the school’s website states Poe has been employed with the district since 2009. The website also states Poe is the Family and Consumer Sciences and FCCLA adviser.
According to online court records, Poe bonded out of jail Wednesday on a $10,000 appearance bond, with a condition she have no contact with the alleged victim.
Her next court appearance has been set for 10 a.m. Feb. 10.
