SHELTON, Wash. — A 31-year-old Shelton High School teacher/coach pleaded guilty Monday to sexual misconduct with one of his students.

Prosecutors say Christopher Frazier engaged in sexual relations with a 17-year-old girl and that he told her he knew what he was doing was wrong and that he’d be in big trouble if anyone found out.

His sentencing has been set for February.

The Shelton School District had called the Mason County Sheriff’s Office after receiving a tip that the social studies teacher and football coach might be in a relationship with a 17-year-old girl, deputies said.

The teacher was arrested after an investigation. He posted $10,000 bail and was released from jail.

      Kenneth Briggs, once again you are correct. I would add some intense counseling while he is in prison and a lifetime of probation. This crap has got to stop!!

    Sure it’s against the law, but that girl knew what she was signing up for. Not once does it say that it was non consensual. It’s a shame that she isn’t punished the same way. Should of stuck with someone her own age.

    Young adults that are almost of age should aslo be charged with under age sex solicitation they know what they are doing and its just as wrong to say the teacher is in any more wrong than the student being that age is just plane not right

      Are you insane? Because the “adult” is just that – an adult and should be capable of using better judgement; and because a teacher is in a position of authority over a student. And because teachers are held to a higher standard than students.

    I attended shelton high school in the lates 80s.
    The band teacher had a matress and wine bottles in the back room.
    Nice to know still going on 20 some years later.

    I also think that the minor(s) who engage in the sexual acts WILLINGLY, should also serve some sort of legal punishment. People such as this 17-year old, is of sound mind and is clearly a functional human being, there is not a reason her perverse actions should be excused. She’s just as guilty as the teacher, age has nothing to do with it…she knew better, just as he did/does. The sad thing is that this type of behavior has been going on for years and clearly still is. It’s a shame, because now that she knows she can get away with such behavior and there are no consequences, she’ll probably seek out another “hot” teacher and get her rocks off again. Not punishing the other party (depending on the circumstances of the case), doesn’t teach anyone anything….especially the young ones. All it tells them is that since they’re not “adults,” they can pretty much F off and get away with it. Don’t get me wrong with this rant, I know the teacher was WRONG here, lol, I’m just saying it’s silly that the Legal system doesn’t set an example for the young people and step it up.

      To be a teacher in Washington State you have to pass background checks and FBI finger print clearance.
      This is either a first offense or first time.
      Teachers should never cross that line and ones who do are pedophiles the victim is a child and is never to blame.
      Blaming the victim as well as the abuser is like saying the abuser is not 100% to blame.
      The abuser is the adult and is 100% to blame.

      That being said I know some wonderful teachers at the Shelton School district and don’t believe this is a product of the school system, but of a sick individual who was savvy enough to fool us all into thinking he was not sick. He probably even won awards for his work with students.

        I meant to say this is probably his first time or first time getting caught so he most likely is able to pass a background check and finger print clearance. Also note the school district followed procedure and called the police and did not try to cover it up.

    I am a firm believer of karma and even when it could end up with me getting in trouble I always end up doing the right thing or even when a cashier gives me too much change back I always tell them and give them back what isn’t mine. So now I am thinking about maybe I should go to the police and give them back what isn’t mine.
