Former Morro Bay High School teacher and swim coach Tyler Andree was denied home detention by the San Luis Obispo County Sherriff’s Office and will serve his 120-day suspension in jail.
In July, Andree pled no contest to charge of having sex with a minor and was sentenced in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court.
Andree resigned his position at Morro Bay High in central California in January as a teacher and varsity girls swim coach and was arrested on charges that he had sex with one 17-year old student and sent explicit text messages to another minor.
After the sentencing, Andree applied for home detention through the Sherriff’s Office, which was initially denied, appealed, and then accepted.
On Wednesday, after review, the Sherriff’s Office denied the request again due to the fact that it was a sex crime.
“The Sheriff’s Office takes crimes against children and sex crimes seriously, the decision to deny the appeal is in line with similar decisions in similar cases,” the office said in its release.
“The Sheriff’s Office evaluates all Home Detention cases on a case-by-case basis but generally crimes against children, sex crimes, or violent crimes do not qualify for Home Detention in order to ensure public safety.”
