Oklahoma County- A Harrah High School Teacher was arrested at school Thursday for having an inappropriate texting relationship with a student.

Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division arrested 29-year-old Charles James Copeland on May 23, 2019. Copeland faces a complaint of indecent or lewd act with a child. Copeland, a teacher and coach at Harrah High School, communicated with a 16-year-old female student via cellphone texts about sexual acts, and contact between the two.
