Ex-Teacher Charged with Raping Boonville High School Student
A former teacher at Boonville High School has been charged with rape based on allegations that he sexually assaulted a student twice in his classroom after school hours, according to court documents.
27-year-old Matthew Evans resigned from Boonville High School in the first week of December and was arrested on a warrant on Thursday, December 20. He has been charged with rape as a level 3 felony and sexual battery as a level 6 felony. The first alleged incident occurred on January 30, 2018.
According to the Warrick County Sheriff’s Office, Evans attempted to kiss the student while they were in his classroom. The student told Evans that he was wrong to do this and that the incident made the student uncomfortable. Evans allegedly texted the student after they left the room.
The student told police that they visited the classroom again and that Evans groped the student while they tried to push him off.
According to investigators, several students reported a pattern of Evans inappropriately touching female students and walking into the girls’ dressing room when students were not fully dressed. Several of these students also told a school administrator that Evans touched them inappropriately and that these incidents made them feel uncomfortable.
