A Pinellas Park High School teacher is in jail today on charges of having a sexual relationship with a female student who was a minor at the time.
Jonathan Dunn, 28, 5624 15th Ave. S., Gulfport, has been charged with three counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and a count of transmission of material harmful to a minor. He was taken to the Pinellas County Jail where he is being held on a $70,000 bond.
Police said the relationship occurred during a three-week period in December 2011 and included sexual activity on and off the school campus. At the time of the relationship, the victim was 16 years of age and has since turned 18.
Dunn is also accused of engaging in sexually explicit online conversations with the victim during the same timeframe, police said.
The school’s resource officer got a tip about the relationship this week and an investigation was started.
This case remains under investigation.
