No word has surfaced as to whether the charges indicate that Wilfinger had sex with multiple students or as to the time line for when the alleged sexual activity occurred.
The Clark County School District confirmed that a school police officer arrested Wilfinger this weekend, with her first scheduled court appearance taking place on Saturday morning. Parents throughout the district were notified about Wilfinger’s arrest.
Public records indicate that Wilfinger has worked for the district since 2009, when she began teaching 6th grade math at Hyde Park Junior High School. She left the school the following year and worked as a substitute teacher until 2013, when she began working at Molasky JHS.
