A 41-year-old Florida teacher at East Ridge High School has been arrested after being accused of having sex with a 17-year-old female student.

Marshall Jungreis, a history teacher there, has been charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office says the incident allegedly happened in late 2015, but that they were only made aware of it on Thursday.

He had apparently contacted her by email via

“The victim knew Jungreis, as she had been a former student of his at the high school where she still attends,” Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. John Herrell said.

The victim says he picked her up at about 1 a.m. back in November of 2015 and drove her to the school where he unlocked the gate, drove up to his portable classroom, took her inside and had sex with her.

During his interview by detectives, he admitted to being with the victim after meeting her on the site, he denied there was any sexual activity.

He’s now in the Lake County Detention Center with no bond.
