English teacher to be arraigned on felony charges involving sex with 17-year-old former student
Got word a little while ago that Mark Christopher Litton, the 33-year-old English teacher at Orinda's Miramonte High, will be arraigned Tuesday on felony charges.
Litton, who lives in a Walnut Creek apartment complex, was arrested last week on suspicion of having unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, a former student. He was booked into County Jail in Martinez on $250,000 bail.
Walnut Creek police Capt. Tim Schultz says that the alleged victim is a 17-year-old girl, but declined to say whether the alleged sexual relationship with Litton involved a one-time incident or something more ongoing. He said the investigation is still open.
