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.


“Oklahoma prosecutors charged two people on Friday for the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old girl in what is reportedly a case of ‘payback’ over a sexually transmitted disease. Andrew Hall, 30, and Cheyenne Blalock, 17, were charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Kirstan Patterson, 17, according to court documents. Patterson’s mother and stepfather reported the teenager missing on New Year’s Day and her body was found hours later near the Spring Creek boat dock on the Neosho River in Mayes County, with a gunshot wound to the head, deputies said. The Mayes County Sheriff’s Office arrested Hall and Blalock later that day and they are being held on a $1 million bond. Their next court appearances are set for Jan. 9.”

An Oklahoma teacher and cheer coach has been arrested on sexual battery charges after confessing to repeatedly having sex with two male students on separate occasions.

Brandy Lynn Foreman, 29, was taken into custody on December 5 following an investigation by the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, which was sparked by a tipster’s call to the Oklahoma Office of the State Board of Education alleging inappropriate sexual conduct toward current and previous students.

Foreman was arrested on Dec. 5 and booked into the Sequoyah County Jail after an investigator for the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s office, Cindy Smith, interviewed students and Foreman about allegations of sexual assault. Foreman was released shortly following her arrest on a $20,000 bond.

In the probable cause affidavit signed Tuesday, Smith reported the superintendent of the school, Larry Henson, had received a report from the Oklahoma Office of the State Board of Education advising him a caller had reported possible “inappropriate sexual contact and the exchange of inappropriate photos between a teacher, Brandy Foreman, and possibly two current students and one previous student at Central School.”

According to the affidavit, one of the students stated sexual relations with Foreman began in 2017 when he and Foreman had “communication and talked sexually through the social media app Snapchat.” The student also reported he had received nude photos through the same Snap-chat application.

The report states Foreman admitted she had engaged in sexual intercourse approximately three times with the student. Foreman said the last time she had sexual relations with the student was between June and July of this year noting the student graduated in May.
