A married high school volleyball coach has been charged with rape after police said she engaged in a threesome with a teen boy and an adult female former teacher.
Tulsa County deputies said Joyce Churchwell, a teacher at Berryhill Public Schools, has been under investigation since mid-December. She is accused of having a sexual relationship with a student.
Deputies said they interviewed a student who admitted to having a sexual encounter with Churchwell at her home while her husband was away.
Investigators served multiple search warrants, spoke with witnesses and looked through electronic messages. The District Attorney’s Office issued an arrest warrant based on the evidence collected.
Churchwell turned herself in Tuesday upon learning about the warrant, deputies said.
