Martinez Police Arrest Teacher Suspected of Sexual Relationship With Teen

MARTINEZ (BCN) -- A 40-year-old teacher suspected of having a sexual relationship with a teen she tutored was arrested over the weekend, Martinez police said Monday.

Jane Shetterly, a high school teacher with the West Contra Costa County Unified School District, was taken into custody Sunday afternoon at a home in the 1500 block of Pine Street in Martinez.

Police said they were told on Saturday there was an alleged ongoing sexual relationship between a former teen student and Shetterly while she was working as a private tutor.
