STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Stillwater police say one of the organizers of Oklahoma’s 2018 teacher walkout has been arrested for making lewd proposals to a minor who was a former student.
Police Capt. Kyle Gibbs says 27-year-old Alberto Morejon was arrested Tuesday after an investigation that began after the child’s parent contacted police about a possible relationship with the former teacher.
Formal charges haven’t been filed.
Morejon is a history teacher and a coach at Stillwater Junior High School.
In 2018, he launched a teacher walkout page on Facebook that reached more than 70,000 followers and became an online meeting place during the walkout.
