Fresno County, CA – Clovis Unified science teacher Lindsey Trimble was arrested for allegedly having sex and engaging in oral copulation with a student. She was in her third year of employment of Clovis East High School.

The 28-year-old California teacher is accused of having sex with a 17-year-old student. Clovis East High School officials report that they first learned of a possible inappropriate relationship between Trimble and a student last Thursday morning, ABC Local notes. Law enforcement officers were called to the school to investigate and the science teacher was taken into custody that same afternoon.

Clovis Police Department public information officer Janet Stoll-Lee had this to say about the arrest of Lindsey Trimble:

“She was arrested here at Clovis Police Headquarters for having sex with a minor and oral copulation. She posted bail at $55,000 dollars and was released.”

The supposed sexual relationship between the Fresno County science teacher and a student allegedly occurred off campus between March and July of this year. Trimble is married and lives in nearby Auberry. She resigned from her teaching position at Clovis East High School the evening of her arrest, CBS 47 TV reports.

Clovis Unified spokesperson Kelly Avants had this to say about the arrest and claims that a teacher was having sex with a student:

“No doubt in anyone’s mind who works for us what is and is not appropriate; our expectations. We hold our staff to a very high standard. I think the fact that she resigned immediately indicates that the relationship existed.”

An investigation into the teacher’s actions is still ongoing, Clovis police officers reportedly do not believe any other victims exist.

    I do have trouble viewing the boys as "victims" I just wish I had a teacher like that when I was a teen. But it is surprising when by far the most of these incidents involve female teachers. I was accustomed to thinking of the dirty old coach hiting on the hot young cheerleader but now it seems to be all women doing the hitting. This certainly proves you don't have to be smart to be a teacher. A teen age boy is just a walking hard on looking for some place to stick it and there is no chance of keeping it secret since the boy is sure to brag to everyone he knows. Stupid

    That's bullshit. They've done plenty of studies now that have shown the negative effects of sexual abuse are EXACTLY the same despite the gender of a child. How can anyone defend having sex with a kid? There was a cute male teacher a lot of girls had a crush on in my high school, but if anything happened with him and a student people would be going crazy. But because it's reversed it's okay? It wouldn't even matter if he begged her to have sex with him, she's the adult. I thought dating someone that was in his 20s when i was 16 was fine. Now that I'm 23, the thought of having sex with a legal guy of 18 is disgusting. Someone who is nearly 30 having sex with a student? It's an adult abusing power, plain and simple. The same thing as a male priest having sex with a teen boy. Gender is totally irrelevant. It's mostly men with the point of view that it's okay, but it's just not. Boys in this situation have been interviewed and even the ones that "pursued" the teacher were just emotional wrecks and filled with regret. Plus, girls are a few years ahead when it comes to puberty, so if anything the thinking should be the other way around. Regardless, it's a child. Think about it, at 17 he was born in 1995. Seems even creepier.

    plenty of studies? cite to a few. the boys were emotional wrecks filled with regret? none that i know. sorry that you have psychopathology sufficient to find sex with a legal 18 year old — only five years younger than yourself — to be "disgusting." but that is no reason to foist your perverse sense of morality on the rest of us. and as to your claim that the effects of sexual "abuse" are the same independent of gender: how many male students have become pregnant as a result of sex with a teacher?

    What a ridiculous rant Meridith. In 34 of the 50 states the age of consent is 16 or 17. This woman is being pilloried and branded for life for the crime of living in the wrong state, just one of many negatives of Kalifornia.
