Teacher Moonlighting as a Tutor Arrested on Suspicion of Sex with a Minor
MARTINEZ — A high school teacher was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a student. The teacher who moonlights as a private tutor was arrested during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
The Martinez Police Department received information about an improper sexual relationship between an adult and a teenage minor. An investigation commencing May 29 led to the teacher’s arrest one day later.
Detectives investigating these allegations obtained a warrant to search the residence of 40-year-old Jane Shetterly. In addition, they also obtained an arrest warrant for her.
The warrants were executed at 4:30 p.m. on May 30. Shetterly was subsequently taken into custody without further incident.
A judge set bond for Shetterly at $250,000 to be released from jail. Inmate records for Contra Costa County indicate that she is no longer in custody.
Shetterly is an art teacher and swim coach for the West Contra Costa County School District. For several years, she has worked at De Anza High School in the city of Richmond.
However, the suspect apparently was arrested in her capacity as a private tutor, not as a high school teacher. She is accused of maintaining an ongoing sexual relationship with a minor. The suspect apparently tutored the student.
Shetterly faces multiple felony counts for sexual misconduct with a minor. At this point, authorities believe there has only been one victim.
The investigation remains open. Anyone with information can call Martinez police detective Tatiana Montano at 925-494-4085.
