Sarah Porter, 24, taught Spanish; faces two counts

Posted

Arapahoe High School teacher Sarah Porter was arrested and charged with sexual assault of a child on March 22, according to a letter from Littleton Public Schools Superintendent Brian Ewert.

Porter, 24, has been charged with sexual assault on a child by someone in a position of trust and sexual exploitation of a child.

Porter has taught Spanish at the school since August 2018, according to Ewert's letter. She was an assistant volleyball coach last fall and has been an assistant track coach for the past few weeks.

Porter is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy she was coaching in track, according to an arrest affidavit.

A tip sent to Safe2Tell, an anonymous reporting system, said that Porter had kissed a student, according to the affidavit.

The student later told investigators that Porter had sent him nude photos and videos of sex acts, and forced herself on the student and threatened him if he resisted, the affidavit says.

Porter is currently being held in the Arapahoe County Jail without bond, according to court and jail records.

Porter is the second teacher at Arapahoe High School to be arrested on suspicion of sex assault on a student in recent months. Drama teacher Ian Ahern was arrested in January and charged with sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.

Anyone with information in Porter's case is asked to call the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office at 720-874-4020.
