Marysville police arrest teacher accused of misconduct

The Mount Vernon man is under investigation for communication involving a student.

MARYSVILLE — A Marysville School District teacher was arrested Friday over allegations of improper conduct with a 14-year-old student.

The Mount Vernon man, 49, is accused of communication with a minor for immoral purposes. Marysville police announced the arrest in a Friday evening news release.

The girl told someone about the allegations, and police got involved, according to the release. She reported having conversations with the teacher that caused concern, “as well as at least one pre-arranged meeting, all of which occurred shortly after summer vacation commenced.”

Detectives have not found any evidence of sexual assault, and no additional victims have been identified, police said.

The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

“The district is cooperating with law enforcement and will be placing the involved staff member on leave,” the release said.
