Chris Austin/Christina Jacobson
BEAUMONT — The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a lewd act upon a child.
37-year-old Lake Arrowhead resident Chris Austin, also known as Christina Jacobson, an English teacher at Beaumont High School, was accused of sexual penetration of a minor and oral copulation of a minor.
The 16-year-old unnamed female victim alleged that the act occurred at or near her home.
Austin was placed on leave from the school when they learned of the allegations. Detectives discovered that the suspect had moved and could not locate her at first.
They located her at a traffic stop in the La Canada/Flintridge area. Austin was then arrested and bail was set at $500,000.
