CARMICHAEL (CBS13) — A substitute teacher in the San Juan Unified School District was arrested on Tuesday after California Highway Patrol officers pulled over the alleged victim.
Jeremy Nevis, 25, is accused of multiple counts of sexual assault against an underaged girl.
The CHP won’t say what made the officer suspicious after they pulled over the teenage victim early on Monday.
“Every stop is always different,” said CHP Officer Sean Kennedy.
But whatever she said, and whatever the officer saw was enough to jumpstart the investigation.
“Big thing here is it’s a minor. This is somebody’s daughter somebody’s sister and our job is to protect,” said Kennedy.
CBS13 learned that Nevis has taught in the San Juan district since April. A spokesman says they’re investigating to see if the alleged victim is one of their own students.
Nevis’ roommate says officers came knocking on his door Monday afternoon, accusing the substitute teacher of multiple counts of sexual assault against an underage girl.
“I haven’t talked to him since he was arrested,” the roommate who didn’t give his name said. “I really don’t know what is true and what is not and even what that looks like.”
He says this is unusual for the local musician and part-time school teacher.
“He’s a person who doesn’t want to hurt a fly or hurt anybody. I don’t know I haven’t talked to him.”
