Atherton Schools Teacher Accused of Having Sex with Teen Student

A Genesee County teacher was arraigned on multiple criminal sexual conduct charges after it was discovered he was allegedly sleeping with a 14-year-old student.

Prosecutors say 54-year-old Jerry Cutting, a teacher with Atherton Community Schools, began a sexual relationship with the girl at the end of the last school year, which continued through the summer. Three students came forward with the accusations against Cutting and investigators say other evidence corroborates their story.

Cutting was charged with six counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct. Police are asking anyone else who may be a victim of Cutting’s to come forward and call the Burton Police Department.
