Just days after a Las Vegas high school teacher and his wife made local news as parents of the city’s first baby born in 2017, the new dad was arrested for allegedly having sex with a female student.
Clark County school police Capt Ken Young said that 29-year-old Ryan Davis was arrested Wednesday after questioning about allegations of inappropriate contact with an 18-year-old female student.
Davis was featured with his wife, Joslind Nathan, in the Las Vegas Review-Journal after the couple welcomed their daughter at Sunrise Children’s Hospital at 12.27am on New Year’s Day, nearly three weeks ahead of schedule.
According to a post on the hospital’s Facebook page, Rylin Zyairah Davis was born weighing in at 6lbs, 12oz. and 19 3/4 inches in length.
In the Review-Journal story about the first New Year’s baby, Nathan, 23, explained that she decided to name her baby girl ‘Rylin’ because it was reminiscent of her husband’s given name.
Nathan, a first-time mom, also talked about feeling relieved that Rylan was born healthy, having been told during her pregnancy there was a chance her daughter might be afflicted with Down syndrome.
The mother and baby were scheduled to be discharged from the hospital on Monday; three days later, Nathan’s husband was taken into custody
Ryan Davis works as a substitute teacher and football coach at Legacy High School.
According to Young, police learned this week of allegations that the incidents occurred in 2016 off school property.
Jail records showed Davis was freed on $100,000 bail from the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance on felony sex with a pupil charges.
Since his arrest, Davis has been relieved of all teaching and coaching duties, reported Las Vegas Now.
Officials with the Clark County School District say the 29-year-old was hired in 2014.
