Placer County Teacher Arrested, Suspected of Having Sexual Relations with Former Student

Jennifer Lynn Woods of Granite Bay allegedly had a sexual relationship with a student two years ago.

A Placer County teacher was arrested for allegedly having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a former student, who was 16 and 17 years old at the time.

Granite Bay resident Jennifer Lynn Woods, 35, was booked at the Placer County Jail on Jan. 10 on charges of sex with a minor and oral copulation with a minor, according to the Placer County Sheriff's Office.

Woods met the male student two years ago when he was a student of hers, according to the sheriff’s office. The relationship went on for one year; the victim was 16 and 17 years old at the time. The student has since transferred to another school, according to a news release.

The Auburn Journal reports that Woods is a teacher at Sierra Vista School in Newcastle, a school for special needs students.

Woods’ employer, the Placer County Office of Education, contacted the sheriff’s office when they received information that she may be having an inappropriate relationship with a former student.

Woods’ bail was set at $100,000 and she was bailed out of jail the day of her arrest.
