A Walnut Hills High School teacher has been arrested and is facing multiple felony charges, accused on having an inappropriate relationship with a student.
According to officials with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Jeremy Collins was arrested following a investigation by the Cheviot Police Department and the Regional Electronics and Computer Investigation Task Force.
That mother allegedly told police she found inappropriate pictures and messages on her daughter’s cellphone.
Collins was arrested on two counts of disseminating matter harmful to a juvenile and three counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor — all felony charges.
Collins was employed at Walnut Hills High School where he worked as a German language teacher.
A statement from a spokesperson with Cincinnati Public Schools reads in part, “Last night, law enforcement officials informed Cincinnati Public Schools that Jeremy Collins, a German language teacher at Walnut Hills High School, was under investigation.
“CPS immediately notified Collins that he was not permitted on any CPS property, activities, or events while CPS cooperated in the investigation.”
Collins is being held at the Boone County, Kentucky, jail pending extradition to Hamilton County.
The investigation pertaining to any “unidentified victims remain(s) ongoing,” investigators said.
Anyone with information related to this case or with any information related to these types of crimes should report the information to the Regional Electronics and Computer Investigation Task Force at 513-946-8335.
