26-year-old English teacher and soccer coach at St. Joseph High School in Michigan, Lauren Hill, didn’t have a single negative thing said about her by students of the school when they learned of her arrest on charges of sexual misconduct for her alleged sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student on the school’s soccer team.
A former standout soccer star at Michigan State University, Ms. Hill, who is unmarried, was arrested last week and has been charged with two counts of 2nd degree Criminal Sexual Conduct and two counts of 3rd degree Criminal Sexual Conduct, stemming from the relationship. She’s not expected to face any charges having to do with liaisons with a minor, as the victim wasn’t one.
The whole investigation started when a parent became suspicious of ‘an inappropriate relationship’ between Lauren and the girl. The school immediately asked Ms. Hill about it and placed her on administrative leave. They then contacted the St. Joseph Department of Public Safety.

“We are thankful to SJPD for their quick response and support,' Superintendent Ann Cardon said in a statement. “Our high school administration and staff have handled this situation with tremendous professionalism and respect. Our main focus is always student safety and our efforts will be concentrated on providing a safe and calm learning environment as we finish the school year.” She also reported that Ms. Hill had resigned May 1st.

She was housed in the Berrien County Jail until May 3rd, when she posted a $10,000 bond. Her arraignment is scheduled for May 12th.

Students have reported that the victim hasn’t been back to school since Lauren Hill’s arrest.
