High School Teacher Arrested for Sending Sexually Explicit Photos/Videos to Student (Photo) - 04/18/19

On Saturday, April 13, 2019, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report that a high school teacher had sent sexually explicit photos and videos to an underage student. A detective was immediately assigned to follow up.

The suspect in the case was identified as Timothy Yee, 30, of Beaverton. During the investigation, detectives obtained evidence that corroborated the report from the student. It was determined that Mr. Yee and the underage student communicated via social media and that Mr. Yee sent sexually explicit messages, photos and videos to the student. He requested the same of the student.

Detectives confirmed that Mr. Yee was employed as a health teacher and wrestling coach at Aloha High School. Detectives contacted the Beaverton School District, who cooperated fully with investigators. Mr. Yee was immediately placed on leave.

At the time of the alleged crimes, Mr. Yee resided in the city of Portland. For that reason, this case will be prosecuted in Multnomah County.

On April 17, 2019, detectives contacted Mr. Yee at his residence in Beaverton. He was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Luring a Minor and Using a Child in Display of Sexually Explicit Conduct. His bail has been set at $255,000.

Arraignment is scheduled for 2 p.m. today at the Multnomah County Justice Center in Portland.

Detectives wish to speak to anyone who has information on this case. Please contact Detective Robert Rookhuyzen at 503-846-2673.
