The Campbell High School student involved in an alleged sexual encounter with a former teacher has reportedly turned herself into police.
Patch has learned that the 17-year-old student is now in the custody of the Smyrna Police Department.
Former Campbell High teacher Jonas Magdangal, 55 of Smyrna, was arrested Thursday for allegedly sexually assaulting the student. Detectives also obtained a warrant for extortion for the student after they alleged that she received money and an “A” in the class in exchange for keeping the encounter secret.
Smyrna police say that on Dec. 31, Magdangal drove the victim to a Comfort Inn and Suites on Highland Parkway where they had sexual intercourse. The student later received money and an “A” in the class in exchange for her silence.
According to Smyrna police, the victim’s parents said she would turn herself in by the end of the day Friday. Officer Michael Smith, Smyrna's public information officer, said Magdangal had recently resigned from his post at Campbell.
